(CHATSWORTH, CA) -- Adam & Eve Pictures is proud to announce the release of "Afrodite Superstar", the first ethnically diverse feature to come out under Femme Chocolat, a new division of Candida Royalle's internationally acclaimed Femme Productions.
With the development of Femme Chocolat, Royalle seeks to address the much neglected audience of ethnically diverse couples. "Afrodite Superstar" which was directed by Royalle and African American fledgling filmmaker Venus Hottentot, is the first ever adult film that sensitively addresses the needs of women of color.
New director Venus Hottentot chose her name in honor of the Hottentot Venus, a South African woman who was kidnapped and sexually exploited in the 19th century, "I wanted to create an intelligent and non-pornographic/ non-exploitive sex film that features characters of color and would be uplifting instead of degrading." "This movie steps out of the realm of 'traditional' adult entertainment." says Adam & Eve Pictures Publicist, Mischa Allen, "It's eroticism comes not just from the heat in the sex scenes, but from the intelligence of the story and the personal strength of the characters. This feature is not to be missed!"
"With her line of Femme productions, Candida Royalle virtually changed the genre [of adult entertainment]. Femme Chocolat could very well do it again." - Megan McChesney, Toronto Star
Afrodite Superstar was released on April 3rd and distributed by Adam & Eve Pictures.
