South African Gay & Lesbian Film Festival
Title: Little More Than a Year Ago.. Diary of a Porn Star
Director: Marco Filiberti
Specs: Italy 2002 35mm 103min subtitled
Dynamic, incandescent Rikki Kandinsky is the toast of Italy's porn scene; his secretive aristocratic up-bringing makes him more magnetic. The death of their father brings Rikki and his brother Frederico together for the first time in 11 years. Frederico is intrigued by his brothers self-imposed exile. Rikki introduces the straight-laced Frederico to the most intimate and graphic details of Rome's gay and porn society.
As their bonds tighten, the brother's priorities are changed when a tragic accident leaves a strange boy, Plapla, motherless. Rikki takes Plapla under his golden wings, and a deep friendship develops that is severed by the Grandmother's disgust of Rikki's lifestyle. When Rikki mysteriously dies this compelling part-doccie, part-drama becomes Plapla's investigation into the life of the controversial foster father he almost had.
