About
A Porno Mortis
Pornography is an issue rife with knee jerk responses and emphatic opinions. This video follows the story of one reporter’s attempt to produce an exposé on the life and times of best selling pornographer, Simon Black. Through quirky interviews and graphic flashbacks, a pervasive ambiance of sex, violence and blatant misinformation underscores this satirical Rorschach test that suggests you can learn more about the people than the issue in their response to pornography.
