A Life in Dirty Movies

The film follows The Sarnos for a year, as 88-year old Joe is struggling to get a new film project off the ground, a female-centered softcore film in his old style. Following in Joe and Peggy's footsteps we are taken on an exciting and often hilarious journey, between a wintery Manhattan and the couple's summer retreat in Sweden. This is intercut with a look back on the dramatic events that shaped Joe and Peggy's lives, and through their very personal story we chronicle how sexploitation evolved in to hardcore, and Joe's significant place in this history as an erotic "auteur" whose ambitions as a filmmaker often surpassed the needs of the genre he was working in.
