I’m very proud to announce that my film Respectable – The Mary Millington Story will be having its Italian première at the Gorizio Film Forum & Festival which runs from 29 March to 2 April 2017.
FilmForum/MAGIS is an international movie and media studies event organized by the University of Udine (Italy) in collaboration with Concordia University in Montreal. Inaugurated in 2003, FilmForum has now become one of the most important events in the field of film and media studies, and is renowned for the originality of its cutting edge topics.
I’ll be appearing at two events – firstly, on Thursday 30 March, for an on-stage discussion of the British porn industry of the Sixties and Seventies, alongside Dr Oliver Carter from the University of Birmingham, and then I’ll introducing Respectable on Friday evening 31 March.
It’s going to be a huge honour to bring Mary Millington to an Italian audience, more used to the home-grown delights of Cicciolina, Moana Pozzi and Rocco Siffredi.
