(LOS ANGELES, CA) -- Vivid-Alt’s "Girls Lie," will have an auspicious world premiere at the 1st Porn Film Festival (www.pornfilmfestivalberlin.de/) in Berlin on Saturday night, October 21st.
The festival begins Wednesday, October 18th and runs through Sunday, October 22nd, with the "Girls Lie" premiere scheduled on Saturday at the Kant 1 Theater. U.S. fans will get a chance to see the movie after it reaches stores across nationwide starting Tuesday, October 24th.
"Girls Lie" is directed by the head of Vivid- Alt, Eon McKai, who is credited as the founder of the alt-porn genre. The film stars Charlotte Stokley, Dana DeArmond, Riley Mason and Pixie Pearl. An AVN reviewer who saw a preview called the film "innovative… mesmerizing… scorching… pornography of a different stripe."
Soundtrack music is a mix of artists selected by McKai and include some of his current favorites. He said assembling the "Girls Lie" track was "A labor of love." "I’m almost as proud of the soundtrack as I am of the sex scenes," he noted. The artists include Panthers, Tommie Sunshine, Xbxrx, Wolves in the Thrown Room, C.P., Anavan, Subarachnoid Space and Matmos. Matmos (the combo of Drew Daniel and Martin C. Schmidt) are known for their work with Bjork. A CD of the soundtrack is packaged with a DVD of the movie plus a bonus DVD which includes a behind-the-scenes feature, a bonus scene with Dana DeArmond, multiple photo galleries and a mini documentary entitled "We Weren’t Welcome" about a bad day on the set.
Commenting on the movie McKai says, "Dana lies…Pixie lies and so does Charlotte. Of course, they’ve got their reasons for lying and the movie explores what these reasons are, but we can’t escape the fact that no matter how convincing they sound, girls do lie."
The 1st Porn Festival was organized by Jurgen Bruning, who also came up with the idea to make Thursday, October 19th "Vivid-Alt Porn Night." the evening will feature screenings of excerpts from four movies from the Vivid-Alt imprint, including "The Rebelle Rousers," "East Side Story," "Skater Girl Fever" and "DeArmond does the Internet."
Accompanying Eon McKai to Berlin will be Vena Virago, the director of "East Side Story," Malachi Ecks, producer of "Dana DeArmond does the Internet" and actress Charlotte Stokley, who was featured in both "Skater Girl Fever" and "Girls Lie." Ms. Stokley will be the cover girl on Germany’s Tip magazine.
Other Festival activities include a gallery show with work by Bruce LaBruce, Richard Kern and Nan Goldin. There will also be an opening night screening of Shu Lea Cheang’s "I.K.U." a film that is considered inspirational to the alt porn genre.
