North American Premiere

Based on a book of interviews with porn film day players, this exuberant, anime-influenced movie about life on the bottom rungs of the adult film business focuses on a young girl who finds life in the porno business is a chance for her to escape her humdrum, everyday existence. Now, if she can keep her double identity safe from a veteran (and jealous) actress and a creepy stalker… Love and Loathing and Lulu and Ayano is a tweaked out, anime-esque trip down the porno rabbit hole where the worst thing you can do isn’t a gangbang video, it’s to be unprofessional.

Presented with Japan Cuts: Festival of Contemporary Japanese Cinema.
