Filthy Gorgeous: The Bob Guccione Story to Screen at the PornFilmFestival Berlin

Filthy Gorgeous: The Bob Guccione Story, a Film Produced by Jerrick Media and Directed by Barry Avrich, Is to Be Showcased at the PornFilmFestival Berlin From October 21-25 2015 at the Cinema Moviemento in Berlin, Germany

BERLIN, GERMANY--(Marketwired - September 28, 2015) - Jerrick Media, a disruptive alternative to the traditional media brand, announced today that Filthy Gorgeous: The Bob Guccione Story has been selected for the program at the PornFilmFestival Berlin, held at Germany's oldest cinema. The PornFilmFestival Berlin began in 2006 with the support of German filmmaker Jürgen Brüning, and specializes in erotic and pornographic films. Brüning claims that the genre artistically, socially, and philosophically continues to challenge modern day filmmakers and promotes creative interpretation.

The film, which premiered at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival, lifts the curtain on a man who lived in both light and dark: entertainment icon Bob Guccione. Part gambler, rebel, intellect, and artist, Guccione was equally curious about women as he was about longevity, Degas, and nuclear energy. He gambled his fortune on a dream and lost it all. Once the king of a $350 million empire in the mid-1980's, Guccione died penniless and in debt two months shy of his 80th birthday in the small town of Plano, Texas. Vanity Fair describes Guccione as the "X-Rated Emperor", a man who "turned graphic porn, muckraking journalism, and tabloid headlines into one of the greatest success stories in magazine history, the cornerstone of a multi-million-dollar publishing empire. Then it all came tumbling down."

Executive Producers Jeremy Frommer and Rick Schwartz are the founders of Jerrick Media, which produces and distributes premium digital media across multiple platforms for all demographics. All content is meant to challenge, inspire, and enlighten. Filthy Gorgeous Media, a Jerrick vertical inspired by Guccione's collection, bridges a vintage erotica vibe with a contemporary artistic perspective, creating a sexually disruptive brand.

On Guccione's influence, Jerrick Media CEO Jeremy Frommer states that, "Bob Guccione was a legend. His creative vision continues to influence the digital media space as it did the publication industry 40 years ago." The film is an original production for the Jerrick Media property Filthy Gorgeous Media and Director Barry Avrich.
