Synopsis by Jeremy Wheeler
Hard Trip is an unflinching look at the porn industry currently flourishing in the San Fernando Valley. With more than 10,000 films made each year, the business is as big as ever and Alberto D'Onofrio's documentary is a testament to the young and old actors who have made this industry what it is. Those interviewed are such well-known veterans as Ginger Lynn and ex-actress turned director Veronica Hart as they share stories about the profession that's shaped their professional lives and massively affected their personal ones. In contrast, you also see things through the eyes of up-and-comer Dale DaBone as he makes his way through the casting agency and then onto the set of a shoot. With other stars such as Sharon Mitchell, Asia Carrera, Candy Apples, T.T. Boy, and Julie Meadows chiming in, you're offered a glimpse into the XXX world as never seen before. From the health clinics to the casting couches, it's a human look inside the industry that splits our nation as it takes over video stores, websites, and magazine racks everywhere.
