CineKink Film Festival 2015 presents Club 90 Reunion
This years annual CineKink Film Festival featured a warmly received reunion between the legendary co-founders of the first-ever adult film industry support group, Veronica Hart, Annie Sprinkle, Veronica Vera & Candida Royalle. The late Gloria Leonard was represented by a large, standing photograph of herself. The turnout was huge & welcoming as each of the members took center-stage to present her personal reflections along with clips & photos from her respective career, including brief moments in front of the camera as well as directorial turns behind the camera.
The visual part of the evening – clips & photos – began with the opening segment of Deep Inside Porn Stars, the re-enactment of one of their support group meetings that was performed back in 1983 at NYC’s Franklyn Furnace center for performing arts & culture, and is credited for putting Club 90 on the cultural landscape. This opening segment of Deep Inside was particularly moving in that it featured the late Gloria Leonard opening the re-enactment in one of her usual pithy & cleverly-written explanations of what the audience was about to see.
