Synopsis

It was a $25 000 movie that became a $600 million phenomenon.
It caused an administration to declare war on freedom.
It turned buying a ticket into an act of revolution.

Generally considered the most profitable motion picture of all time, the 1972 adult film DEEP THROAT was more than a titillating curiosity and a huge moneymaker. Released at the very moment when a nation's movements for sexual liberation, equal rights and counter-cultural values were reaching a fever pitch, this sexually explicit film unexpectedly became the flashpoint for an unprecedented social and political firestorm - a major cultural phenomenon whose impact continues to affect us today.

Now 33 years later Academy Award®-winning producer Brian Grazer takes moviegoers behind the scenes of a film that was made for next to nothing and changed everything. Grazer, whose own films have explored a wide array of themes in popular culture—from rap music to high school football to classic children's literature—pitched his documentary idea to HBO's Sheila Nevins, president, HBO Documentary, and then joined forces with two directors whose documentary film work has transformed the genre. With such acclaimed films as THE EYES OF TAMMY FAYE and MONICA IN BLACK AND WHITE, Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato have earned a reputation for casting an unblinking eye on modern life, making documentaries that illuminate the nature and meaning of popular culture with vital, exciting and entertaining looks at the stranger-than-fiction stories from the headlines, happenings and zeitgeists of our time.

Joining Grazer, Bailey and Barbato behind the camera are directors of photography David Kempner and Teodoro Maniaci, music supervisor Bill Coleman, composer David Benjamin Steinberg and editors William Grayburn and Jeremy Simmons, with Kim Roth serving as executive producer and Mona Card as co-producer.

And sitting in front of Bailey's and Barbato's probing lens is a parade of larger-than-life personalities that includes not only some of the filmmakers and stars of DEEP THROAT—director Gerard Damiano (a.k.a. Jerry Gerard), production manager Ron Wertheim and assistant cameraman turned leading man Harry Reems—but also an array of esteemed authors, filmmakers, opinion-makers and idealogues representing virtually every side of the sexual revolution and battle for First Amendment rights—among them Alan Dershowitz, Gore Vidal, John Waters, Norman Mailer, Erica Jong, Camille Paglia, Hugh Hefner...and many more. Providing narration is acclaimed actor and filmmaker Dennis Hopper.
