Synopsis: Controversial filmmaker, curator, festival director and cultural and political trouble maker Richard Wolstencroft will delve into the wonderful world of pornography. He will advocate for the social, artistic, cultural, aesthetic and political significance of what is arguably the most neglected product of latter day Western Capitalist culture. In addition, he will demonstrate how Australia has one of the worst Free Speech records when it comes to pornographic material. Wolstencroft will also show footage and a trailer from his up-coming feature on the pornography business The Last Days of Joe Blow and discuss the making of this new documentary and his personal experience witnessing the porn biz in LA’s The Valley.”
