A XXX documentary about kink, safe sex, and the independent porn studio that championed them both at the height of the AIDS epidemic

Description

New York State Premiere

As the HIV/AIDS epidemic ravaged gay communities with little help from politicians, a small pornography studio did what they could: promote safe sex through hardcore kinky porn. RAW! UNCUT! VIDEO! tells the extraordinary story of Palm Drive Video and the couple who worked tirelessly to keep viewers cumming back for more.

With a combination of archival footage and contemporary interviews, co-directors Alex Clausen and Ryan A. White prove that safe is sexy. Emphasizing the inclusivity of Palm Drive Video and the necessity of queer pleasure in times of struggle, RAW! UNCUT! VIDEO! is a rallying cry for hot, kinky, and politically conscious pornography in the internet era.

This film will be followed by a Q&A with Producer Todd Verow, and Jeffrey Escoffier
