Premier mundial

A tour through the history of porn –among prejudice, taboos and myths–, from the moment it constituted itself as a genre until it became an industry. And, while we’re at it, a look on the chances of progressing in Argentina.

Was porn film invented in Argentina? Technically speaking, it appears so. Or at least that’s what many authorized voices think when they lend their testimonies throughout this documentary, which covers the story of the local triple X industry. Today, with porn standing for around one third of all Internet traffic, filmmakers Torres Negri and Leiva try to understand how was it that Argentina failed to position itself in that market, being that it has such a rich history with that genre. From the incredible ways to avoid censorship during the dictatorship to the widespread growth of porn on the web, and including the VHS and DVD explosions, every phase has its charm, depicted by directors, historians, sexologists, actors, journalists, activists, and other passionate characters.
