Director: Tomer Heymann

Winning Best Director at QFest Houston and Best Documentary at the Israeli Film Academy Awards, this is the latest intimate portrait from the filmmaker who brought us Mr Gaga and Who’s Gonna Love Me Now? (MQFF 2017) Shot over eight years, between Berlin and Tel Aviv, it’s an unflinching and occasionally XXX- rated look at the life of world-famous gay porn sensation and escort Jonathan Agassi. Pulling back the adult entertainment curtain, there’s much more to this deeply affecting doco than meets the eyebrow-raised eye. At its heart is the beautiful relationship Agassi enjoys with his unwavering and supportive mother and the considerable gap between the real Jonathan and his show pony alter-ego.
