The Hardcore truth about women in porn

14 July 2011 4:06 PM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

UK Feminista is to rescreen the 2001 documentary Hardcore that offers a horrifying glimpse into the abuse of women in porn – in a bid to combat the argument that it's just 'people having sex'

An old controversy has arisen over pornography; not the usual ruck about whether it is harmful to women, but a debate over the viewing of women being abused during the making of it.

This Monday UK Feminista is screening the documentary Hardcore, which offers a horrifying glimpse into the industry.

First screened on Channel 4 in 2001, it follows Felicity, a 25-year-old single mother living in the UK, who is desperate to make money to improve her daughter's opportunities. She is invited by a porn agent to meet movers and shakers in the so-called Us 'adult industry'. The audience watches as she goes from a bright, sparky, pretty woman to a cynical and emotionally exhausted shell.
