Deep Throat is the story of the first mainstream porn film. It tackled sex liberation, women’s liberation and divided feminists. Preview a whole new dimension, in the light of the #MeToo movement.

It was the first time that a porn movie was shown on the big screen for the general public. The first porn star in history, celebrated by the media and fashionable stars, Linda Lovelace was the first to speak out against the conditions of porn a few years later. No one believed that she had been the victim of threats and violence from her husband. The resonance with today is staggering. At the time of the #MeToo movement, her testimony and its reception takes on a whole new dimension.
First "sex war", as it was called at the time, within the feminist movement which had just been born: two sides appear and radically oppose each other, those in favor of pornography and prostitution - the pro-sex - advocating the liberation of women's sexuality without censorship, and the abolitionists on the other side, denouncing the exploitation of women and the rape culture conveyed by porn. A fracture that is still relevant today.
