    • Synopsis
    • PORNO E LIBERTA is a documentary by Carmine Amoroso about the generation who fought against puritanism and censorship to defend freedom of speech and sexual freedom.
      From Italy, Denmark, France and California, the film follows a group of rebels who started a battle against censorship through pornography. Together they shook the church, the politics and the institutions.

      Through uncensored footage and exclusive archive material, the film explores the story of passionate pioneers: from porn film director Lasse Braun to Riccardo Schicchi, master of transgression such as the election of porn star Cicciolina in the Italian Parliament. The documentary features several other protagonists such as feminist porn director Giuliana Gamba, author Lidia Ravera and a short animation by Charlie Hebdo's veteran Siné.

      Somehow, they made the world a better place and paved the way for forward-thinking debates today such as neo-feminism or LGBT rights movements.
