The making of 1940s striptease goddess Lili St. Cyr's Love Moods.
Imagine spending time with two of your favorite storytelling grandfathers who just happened to make dirty movies. Mau Mau Sex Sex is a ribald character study of two all-American hucksters, Dan Sonney and David Friedman, dubbed by the New York Times as "The Sunshine Boys of Smut!" They are either Independent Cinema's original outlaws or the nation's two oldest living smut peddlers, or maybe both. This documentary feature offers a scintillating sojourn through a century of cinematic sex and a hilarious and unexpectedly poignant look at the friendship, families and fortunes of two men who found their calling catering to a repressed society's forbidden desires.
The movie combines the latest digital technology with vintage film clips to present a kaleidoscopic take on a loopy, sex-mad society and the two cagey operators who knew how to exploit it.
From first-time director and producer Ted Bonnitt.
Running Time: 80 minutes
Playing in theaters summer/fall of 2001.
