Jonathan Agassi is one of the most successful gay porn stars in the world. Director Tomer Heymann followed him for eight years, both in his temporary hometown of Berlin and with his mother in Tel Aviv, in his Israeli homeland. Although Jonathan claims he has the best job in the world and says that it actually saved his life, it soon becomes clear that he is not particularly happy. Afflicted by childhood traumas, Jonathan seems casual in the execution of the countless acts of sex with which he earns his living. But he increasingly uses hard drugs to numb his feelings. Finally, he is forced to see the harsh reality of his extreme lifestyle. A rare and intimate look into the world of porn and escorts, as well as the touching portrait of a unique mother-son relationship that redefines familiar family norms.
As supporting film we will show “Pizza Roles” by Danny Tayara & Ari Chivukula (US 2017, 5 minutes, Englisch original version).
