A lost vérité masterpiece, and a movie-about-making-movies documentary classic on the level of Chris Smith’s AMERICAN MOVIE.
In the winter of 1974, a naive Chicago indie filmmaker found funding to make THE LAST AFFAIR -- his first feature. The one stipulation mandated by his financial bakers: the movie needed to include hardcore sex scenes. A LABOR OF LOVE documents the ensuing heartfelt, earnest attempt to create an X-rated movie. Between struggles with cast, crew and locations, the production forges on in a manner NBC News described as “a true human comedy.”
