Tomer Heymann, DE, IL, 2018
106 min., OmdU
Porn Film Festival Vienna
Director Tomer Haymann followed Jonathan Agassi, one of the world’s most successful gay porn stars, for several years through different stations of the sex industry. The film captures the birth and genesis of the carefully curated, larger-than-life porn persona Agassi and his fame that is substantially based on breaking taboos. It is a film about sexual fantasies, the world of porn between Israel and Germany, but also about a loving and encouraging mother-son-relationship that challenges common family concepts. “Jonathan Agassi saved my life” not only focuses on Agassi’s stardom and his revolutionary impact on the porn industry, but also on the backstage experience of a destructive lifestyle.
