San Francisco, CaliforniaDigital Parchment Services announces a special William Rotsler Retrospective Adult Film Festival [] taking place May 23 through June 6, 2015 at the San Francisco Center for Sex and Culture, celebrating the launch of a new, enhanced edition of the legendary writer-director’s controversial look at the 1960s birth of the adult film in The Golden Age of Erotic Cinema.

Digital Parchment Services publisher, Jean Marie Stine remembers, “William Rotsler was truly a renaissance man. He was an acclaimed sculptor, filmmaker, photographer, reporter, novelist, illustrator, cartoonist, and the recipient of multiple awards. But first and foremost, William was a visionary erotic filmmaker, acclaimed for such cult classics as Agony of Love, Mantis in Lace, Street of a Thousand Pleasures and Like It Is! During the 1960s he directed dozens of short and feature length films.”

Back in print for the first time in 40 years, The Golden Age of Erotic Cinema is Rotsler’s personal view of the rise of adult filmmaking in the 1960s, beginning with Russ Meyer’s phenomenal success with Deep Throat – the movie that put adult films on the map. The novel takes readers behind the scenes for a look at the making of erotic movies, presents personal interviews with adult stars and producers, and concludes with an “Erotic Cinema Checklist”, rating over 100 erotic movies of the era.

Over the years since its original publication, The Golden Age of Erotic Cinema has achieved the status of a classic on its subject. Eric Schaefer, Associate Professor of Visual and Media Arts at Emerson College hails the book for its “valuable insights and unique perspective,” while John Minson in Bright Lights Film Journal says the book chronicles “the porno-chic age,” providing “contemporary perspectives and valuable insights”

The Rotsler retrospective kicks off Saturday, May 23 with The Golden Age of Erotic Cinema release party and presentation of a video recap of Rotsler’s life and work, including trailers for his erotic movies, personal reminiscences from friends. The evening will end with a showing of one of his notable films.

The following two Sundays will feature more clips and trailers plus screenings of Rotsler’s selected groundbreaking adult films. Throughout all three weeks, there will be a special gallery exhibition of posters for his movies, samples of his erotic photography, and reproductions of his adult cartoon work on display at the San Francisco Center for Sex and Culture.
