Labor Of Love DVD
Vinegar Syndrome proudly presents the home video debut of Robert Flaxman and Daniel Goldman’s portrait of regional filmmaking gone awry.
In the winter of 1974, a naive independent filmmaker based in Chicago
found funding to make his first feature, to be titled “The Last
Affair.” The one stipulation mandated by his financial bakers was that
the movie needed to include hardcore sex scenes. A LABOR OF LOVE
documents the ensuing heart felt and earnest attempt to create an X
rated movie. Between struggles with the cast and problems with crew and
locations, the production forges on in a manner NBC News described as “A
true human comedy” and Hadrian Belove of Cinefamily acclaimed as “a
lost vérité masterpiece … a movie-about-movies documentary classic.”
Directed by Robert Flaxman and Daniel Goldman
Restored in 2k from 16mm Ektachrome camera originals.
