Sex, drugs and identity crises

Jonathan Agassi is one of the most famous gay porn stars in the world, and this remarkably candid portrait is the result of eight years of documenting his world of extremes. Cutting between porn shoots and escorting work in Berlin to visits with his loving mother in Israel, director Tomer Heymann pieces together the key experiences that have come to define his life. JONATHAN AGASSI SAVED MY LIFE is a harsh film without easy answers, but it’s also a gripping and vulnerable movie about taking control of your life.
