A Porno Mortis

Rob Thompson

1993, 23:26 minutes, colour, English


An exposé is being produced on the life and times of best-selling pornographer Simon Black. During the taping, however, the pornographer is brutally murdered and dismembered. Suddenly the interviews taken with family and friends take on a whole new dimension. This tongue-in-cheek docudrama takes a perverse look at the issue of pornography and is the first in Rob Thompson's new genre of video dystopia.
