Schlock! The Secret History of American Movies + Q&A

Embracing those films that surrender good taste in search of a profit, Ray Greene’s absorbing and often hilarious documentary takes an uncompromising look at those films that step far beyond the boundaries of decency. In a post screening discussion, chaired by Helen DeWitt, Greene speaks of his experiences in constructing his work and the film that went too far even for him. Writer Pamela Church Gibson discusses the harsh realities of the pornographic industry whilst programmer Julian Marsh III comments on the wide ranging scope of the sexploitation genre.
