A virtual film screening and chat with director Juliet Bashore

“Vibrant… Gritty… Enthralling” – San Francisco Chronicle

“A startling potent and continuously riveting film with no taboos left to break” – The Village Voice

2021 Kamikaze IG

Newly restored from its original negative, Bashore’s quasi-documentary plunge into the 1980s porn industry takes an unsparing look at issues of misogyny, drug abuse, and exploitation via the story of two women—the naive Tigr and the magnetic, imperious Sharon Mitchell—caught in a toxic romance. By turns mesmerizing and unsettling, Kamikaze Hearts is both a fascinating record of pre-gentrification San Francisco’s X-rated underground and an intense, searing love story.
