Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life

Thursday October 24 @ 9:30 pm

Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life

New York Premiere

Dir. Tomer Heymann, Israel & Germany, 2018, 106 mins

Jonathan Agassi, one of the world’s most successful gay porn stars, splits his time between Israel, where both his parents live, and Berlin. The recipient of multiple international porn awards, Agassi built his fame on something considered taboo but enjoyed by millions worldwide. But as Agassi’s success starts to wane, he responds in increasingly self-destructive ways.

Both a candid portrait of a self-admitted mama’s boy and a harrowing look at the people behind pornography, JONATHAN AGASSI SAVED MY LIFE is a non-judgmental depiction of drug addiction and an industry that can chew you up and spit you out. Award-winning filmmaker Tomer Heymann’s documentary melds ego, idealization, and disappointment into an eerie look at one man’s rapid fall from grace.
