LOST & FOUND FILM CLUB: Eroticon

Direct from the estate sale of a notoriously shameless 42nd Street smut merchant comes: Eroticon. “An exotic tapestry of emotions, sensations and ideas…one step beyond experience,” screamed the original “EX-Rated” poster. This quasi-doc mondo romp doesn’t just give a peek inside the sex-plosion of the early 70′s, it bumps and grinds all over it with a bevy of hilarious interviews punctuating groovy grindhouse montages of ham-fisted hardcore. Meet the editor of Screw Magazine, get the wet-hot truth on the burgeoning porno industry, talk to an accredited sexpert, visit a naughty boutique and learn about the early days of personal ads that put Craigslist to shame. Sure, there’s orgies, awkward BDSM and the obligatory bumping of uglies, but the main attraction here is the soundtrack — engorged with original would-be hits like “Fuck Me Forever.” Bonus cameo by renowned children’s book illustrator Tomi Ungerer! Don your trenchcoat for this impossibly rare screening of what might be the world’s only surviving print?
Dir. Barnard L. Sackett, 35mm, 1973, 88 min.
