New Documentary Screening: "Risky Business"

David Mech, documentary filmmaker, fellow kayaker, and co-organizer of the Miami Kayaking Meetup Group, cordially invites you to attend the screening of his new politically-themed documentary film, Risky Business: A Look Inside America's Adult Film Industry, which is having an official screening at 10pm on Saturday, August 24th at the Fort Lauderdale International Film Festival (FLIFF), which is being held at Cinema Paradiso, 503 Southeast 6th Street, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33301.  After the screening, there will be an audience Q&A session with the film's director and writer. 

Plot Synopsis:
Risky Business: A Look Inside America's Adult Film Industry examines the social, psychological, and economic impacts of performing in adult films. What makes people decide to become adult entertainers, how do they go about entering the business, what are their experiences in the business, and how do they deal with career options, finances, and relationships once they exit the business? The documentary also examines proposed regulations that would address current industry issues, including workplace health and safety, such as mandatory STD testing and condom use, and job discrimination once performers decide to leave the industry and pursue conventional employment. 

Tickets:
$10 - General Admission
$8 - Seniors and Students
$6 - Members of FLIFF or the Fort Lauderdale Film Society

    If you are going to the documentary screening, then you should sign my petition I created today :)

    Subject: Governor Scott: Protect Florida Employees From Discrimination Based on Legal Off-Duty Conduct

    ----
    Hi,

    I created a petition to The Florida State House, The Florida State Senate, and Governor Rick Scott which says:

    "Follow New York State's lead by passing a law protecting Florida employees and government contractors from discrimination based on legal off-duty conduct."

    Will you sign this petition? Click here:
