KALW Radio talks with Rumpus editor Stephen Elliott about his film Cherry and its portrayal of the San Francisco porn industry.
“I don’t think I’ve ever seen a film where I felt that the adult film industry was represented. This is my community, so these are the people I hang out with. And the portrayal of sex work…it’s just treated like heroin in most movies. You get into sex work and it’s like becoming a junky…it’s the worst thing that can happen to you, and that’s just simply not how it is.”
