We are very proud to announce that Simon Sheridan’s film Respectable – The Mary Millington Story will be having its Italian première at the acclaimed Gorizio Film Forum & Festival which runs from 29 March to 2 April 2017.
FilmForum/MAGIS is an international movie and media studies event organised 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 international events in the field of film and media studies, and renowned for originality of its cutting edge topics.
Director Simon Sheridan will appear 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 Simon will be introducing Respectable on Friday evening 31 March. A special screening of Mary’s ground-breaking 1970 movie Miss Bohrloch will also be taking place.
Neither film has never been publicly screened in Italy before, so 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.
