Sex Star was the first film directed by documentarian Lech Kowaliski. Following the lives of porn actors, writers, and underground filmmakers including Georgina Spelvin, Marc Stevens, Andrea True, Honey Stevens, Shirley Clarke, and Guy Talese; the film explores themes of censorship, sexuality, personal relationships, filmmaking, sex work, and the effects of pornography on society in the 1970s. From the flyer, “Sex Star is a very private film that uses the cinema verité technique to entertain and bring insight into the occupation of sex.” Kowaliski would go on to direct cult films such as DOA (1981) and Gringo: Story of a Junkie (1984).
