ISVN – I AM VALENTINA NAPPI (Io sono Valentina Nappi)
Saturday, September 8 – 7 pm – Grand Illusion Cinema
The feature will be preceded by the short film WE ARE THE FUCKING WORLD (Spain, 2017) by Olympe de G.
A manifest for pornography based on consent, WE ARE THE FUCKING WORLD documents nine queer porn stars shooting an orgy in a way that shows them going beyond the question of gender or sexual orientation – showcasing the beauty of every body and every desire. This film raised funds to support the fight against homo/bi/transphobia. (33 min)
Author, director & performer, for my own pleasure and convictions.
I donate every € or $ I get to Amnesty International to sustain their fight against homo, bi and transphobia and for sex workers rights.
Activist for sex positivity and feminist at 🖤.
Naked and not afraid! ✊🏻

Who is Valentina Nappi? Everyone knows her, everyone follows her, everyone one has seen every inch of her body but how intimate can one really get with her? Follow the young Italian porn star in this experimental documentary as she travels back to Naples from Los Angeles making a stop in Rome for the night to meet a friend to catch up both in and out of the sheets. (50 min)
