Plot Summary:

Academy Award-winning producer Brian Grazer ("Friday Night Lights," "A Beautiful Mind," "8 Mile") teams with acclaimed directors Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato ("Party Monster," "Monica in Black and White," "The Eyes of Tammy Faye") on the new motion-picture documentary "Inside Deep Throat". "INSIDE Deep Throat" examines the unanticipated lasting cultural impact generated by "Deep Throat," a sexually explicit film first shown in a midtown Manhattan adult theater in June 1972 that quickly became the flashpoint for an unprecedented social and political firestorm. Generally considered the most profitable film of all time (produced for less than $25,000), "Deep Throat" unexpectedly became a cultural phenomenon at the moment when the nation's movements of sexual liberation, equal rights and questioning authority demanded a combustible focus. The barely one-hour long adult title became compulsory viewing for millions of Americans, and an individual's fascination or repulsion identified his or her place in the cultural shifts of the time. More than 30 years later, "INSIDE Deep Throat" examines the chasm between the modest intentions of the filmmakers behind "Deep Throat" and the unforeseen, ironic impact and legacy that their film left on society.
