FILMRISE RELEASES FRENCH FEMINIST ICON OVIDIE’S PORN EXPOSÉ
“A stunning exploration of the dark underbelly of porn.”
-- Filmmaker Magazine
Available on Amazon Video, iTunes, Google Play and Vudu, as well as DVD and Blu-ray January 16
Brooklyn, NY – December 18, 2017 -- This January, FilmRise will release “Pornocracy,” the provocative exposé on the modern-day porn industry. Directed by former French adult film director Ovidie, the investigative documentary, which was an Official Selection at SXSW 2017, captured international audiences with its shocking and informative presentation of the current changes in the multi-billion dollar X-rated industry. The film will be available on Amazon Video, iTunes, Google Play and Vudu, as well as DVD and Blu-ray January 16, 2018.
“Pornocracy” is a disturbing look at how the wonders of the internet has made the shady industry of pornography rich. The provocative documentary highlights interspersing interviews with former and current porn stars, directors, studio heads, and CEOs of internet companies that now run the streaming websites. However -- it is now in death cramps due to piracy ruining the market and forcing the participants to perform more extreme sex.Through an insider’s eye, Ovidie investigates how the arrival of these free streaming websites, which feature amateur and pirated clips, has transformed the way porn is created and consumed. In her investigation, she exposes how a group of programmers hijacked the adult industry to create a mysterious multinational corporation that virtually controls the entire adult industry worldwide.
As Ovidie states, her film “reveals how a group of ‘geeks’ with no experience in pornography have hijacked the adult industry and are slowly killing it with their controversial financial structures.”
In addition to SXSW, “Pornocracy” was an Official Selection at Denmark’s CPH-DOX and Docville International Documentary Film Festival. The Hollywood Reporter called it “A business-centric look at the sex-vid industry,” and Indiewire said “Pornocracy is a service to adult entertainers and brings attention to a troubling trend that should make some think twice before indulging in free porn.”
The film has a running time of 77 minutes and is Not Rated. It is in French and English, with English subtitles.

For Immediate Release
New York, NYDecember 13, 2017 Marvel Entertainment and comiXology, Amazon’s premier digital comic shopping & reading service, debut the next exclusive comiXology Originals digital comic series Black Panther: Long Live The King, a 6-issue bi-weekly series written by Nnedi Okorafor, winner of the World Fantasy, Hugo, and Nebula Awards (Binti, Who Fears Death), and illustrated by Andre Araujo (Spidey, The Wicked + Divine).
Black Panther is on sale now for $2.99 on comiXology and Kindle as part of the comiXology Originals line of exclusive digital content and available to current subscribers of the popular comiXology Unlimited service. New subscribers to comiXology Unlimited can also enjoy it for free as part of their 30-day free trial. Black Panther joins The Immortal Iron Fists and Thor Vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universe, as well as the recently announced The Avengers with more exclusive Marvel series to be announced.
“I had a lot of questions about Wakanda, so I brought the lens deep into it,” says Nnedi Okorafor. “You'll see the Black Panther interacting with tech-hacking village kids, vibranium-affected wildlife, and off-grid communities in Wakanda known as "mute zones". Not only is this a deeply personal story about T'Challa, you'll also see a side of the African country of Wakanda that no one's seen before. Oh and there's a mysterious monster in the countryside causing problems for everyone.”
A perfect entry point for new fans and longtime readers alike, Black Panther: Long Live The King is an adventure set in the world of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ landmark Black Panther run and told in the Mighty Marvel Manner! As the Black Panther and an Avenger, T’Challa has had to save the world time and again but those duties pale in comparison to his responsibilities as king of Wakanda. As the nation rebuilds in the wake of revolution, T’Challa finds his people besieged by a massive monster tearing through the country, leaving a trail of destruction in its wake!
“Marvel Comic’s Immortal Iron Fists and Thor vs. Hulk: Champions of the Universehave been topping the charts on comiXology,” said Chip Mosher, comiXology’s Head of Content & Senior Director of Communications. “These digital exclusives, part of the ComiXology Originals line, continue to add value and interest to our comiXology Unlimited subscription service.”
