Made at the height of the anti-porn feminist movement, Canadian filmmaker Klein’s documentary exploration of the darker side of the American (though particularly New York) sex trade and porn film industry, remains one of the most controversial films produced on the subject. Ostensibly following the journey of a young burlesque dancer as she explores increasingly violent forms of sex for profit, Klein presents a bleak and disturbing alternative to the glamorous world of mainstream Porno Chic.
