Sex Worker Movie Marathon – Whore Film Power

A narrative, of a Bay Area sex worker telling her own story followed by a weighty retrospective of sex workers portraits in mainstream cinema, this program is a reflection on intersections/inspirations of sex work and cinema… interpretation, adaptation, translation, dialogue between the medium and power of film, representation, and the importance of workers creating that visual history.
