“Pornocracy” Exposé Slated for January 16 from FilmRise

On January 16, FilmRise will release Pornocracy, a provocative exposé of the modern-day porn industry. Directed by former French adult film director Ovidie, the investigative documentary provides a disturbing look at how the Internet has made shady pornographers rich. Featuring interviews with former and current porn stars, directors, studio heads, and CEOs of Internet companies, Pornocracy also examines how the arrival of free streaming websites has transformed the way that porn is created and consumed, and it exposes how a group of programmers hijacked the adult industry to create a mysterious multinational corporation that virtually controls the entire adult industry worldwide.
