Genres: Drama
Starring: Tigr, Sharon Mitchell, Jon Martin
Director: Juliet Bashore
Plot Sypnosis:

Alternately distressing, instructive, contestable, and fascinating, Juliet Bashore's quasi-documentary plunge into the 1980s porn industry takes an unsparing look at issues of misogyny, drug abuse, and exploitation via the story of two women caught in a toxic romance: the naive newcomer Tigr and her partner, the magnetic, imperious porn veteran Sharon Mitchell. Mesmerizing and unsettling, Kamikaze Hearts is both a fascinating record of pre-gentrification San Francisco's X-rated underground and an intense, searing love story. The film offers a disturbing glimpse of the modification of bodies, feelings, and lives.
