Bright Lights: Inside Lara Roxx (part of M.I.T. Series Women Take the Reel)
7:00 pm - 9:30 pm
Bright Family Screening Room
In the Spring of 2004, 21-year-old Lara Roxx left her hometown of Montreal and headed to L.A to try and make a ton of cash in the adult entertainment industry. Within two months of working in this industry she contracted the most virulent form of HIV while performing sex in front of the camera. Inside Lara Roxx is a feature-length-documentary about the events leading up to that scene and the years after it- it is about the adult movie industry and its impact on a young life. Lara Roxx was hired legally and both men she had sex with tested negative for HIV--paperwork to this effect was presented to Roxx prior to shooting the scene. Miss Roxx's story created a media sensation, but it's when the media hype dies that Inside Lara Roxx begins -- in a psychiatric ward in Montreal. Inside Lara Roxx follows this unlikely young woman through a tumultuous 5-year period as she struggles to build a new identity and find hope in the wake of her past.
