TITLE: Smut Capital of America

BRIEF ABOUT: An in-progress documentary by Michael Stabile chronicles San Francisco as the center of porn production in the U.S. during the early 70s, becoming the first American city in 1969 to effectively legalize pornography, hugely boosting its reputation as a boomtown for sex. The series begins with a screening and discussion with Stabile and continues through August 18 with a wide variety of films made during the era. All will be presented in their original film formats (not digital transfers).
