Erika Lust - Filmmaker
A filmmaker, writer and blogger based in Barcelona. Born in 1977 in Sweden, she studied political sciences, feminism and sexuality. Tired of chauvinistic and tacky mainstream porn, she burst into the adult industry in 2004, with the indie short film The Good Girl – a humorous statement of principles. The immediate success of this first attempt encouraged her to pursue a film career. Besides the XConfessions series, Erika has directed four multi-award winning features: Five Hot Stories For Her, Barcelona Sex Project, Life Love Lust and Cabaret Desire. She defends the need of having women behind the camera in all key positions. Her female characters are sex-positive, powerful and active as well.
