A Swedish journalist (Stefan Nylén) travels to the US to seek out his all time favorite porn star from the 70's and 80's in this cool little documentary from Magnus Paulsson & Christian Hallman. Seka was a platinum blonde sex goddess who ruled the big screen (35mm film), as well as the little screen (home video) back in the golden & silver age of porn. However, in the 80's she up and vanished, leaving the business behind her. Where is Seka? How is she doing? Why did she leave it all behind? These are the questions posed during the film. Along the way, Stefan travels to a porn convention in Las Vegas, interviewing several of the people in the business who either knew Seka, or worked with her at one point in time. He also travels to Los Angeles on his quest for answers. Apparently Seka wasn't too hard to find, and Stefan eventually travels to Chicago to meet his American Idol. What fascinated be about this movie was the actual Seka herself. This is now a woman who by simply looking at her today, you would think she was your next door neighbor! However, she conducts herself freely in her interview with Stefan, which I found to be quite refreshing and entertaining. I really enjoyed the concept and execution of this film. Very much recommended if you like documentaries, and/or the history of porn and the adult film industry.
