Before Sprinkle became an artist and university professor, she was a sex worker and a porn star. In her films she explores bodily experiences and the policy of the female body. The film will be presented by the curator Michal Novotný.

The personal story of a porn actress, artist and university professor from 1999 takes the audience on a journey through the 30 years of her sex career. The documentary made with slight exaggeration and hosted by Annie herself accentuates the sexually positive approach to the emancipation of women and presents non-stereotypical images of promiscuity and so-called perversions. Short takes from the films in which she performed will illustrate the role played by pornography in Annie’s life, as well as the discovered necessity to move beyond her own stereotypes.

Director: Annie Sprinkle
