Jonathan Agassi Saved My Life
Jonathan Agassi, one of the world’s most successful gay porn stars, splits his time between Berlin and Israel. Agassi built his fame and success on what is globally considered a taboo, yet still pleases millions around the world. This film offers a rare and intimate look at the world of porn and escorting, as well as at unique relationship between a mother and son who courageously redefine familiar family concepts. This is a film about a lonely person who seeks love and meaning, but is condemned to a destructive lifestyle, understanding that the extreme fantasies he chases are not necessarily his own.
