Pioneering erotic filmmaker Peter de Rome tells his astonishing life story with humour and charm in this surprising and heart-warming documentary.
Spanning more than eight decades of gay experience in Britain and the US, Peter de Rome : Grandfather of Gay Porn charts Peter’s journey from cinematic outlaw to celebrated film icon with contributions from collaborators and some of those he has influenced.
The film uses extensive extracts from Peter’s varied and often explicit work, from his early 8mm experiments in the 1960s to his extraordinary feature films to create a portrait of a true one- off.
