Beyond the headlines and behind the shadows, Candice (original working title While You Were Gone: The Untold Story of Candida Royalle) is an intimate portrait of the woman behind the porn star and pioneering feminist pornographer, Candida Royalle.

This film has been a labor of love and a test of dedication.

Candice and I started to work together on this film after we met in 2013 while making Inside Her Sex. Candice asked if I would be willing to help make a biography film where she could tell her own story, in her own words.

When Candice passed away in 2015, I was left with the task of finishing the film. For a number of reasons, it has taken longer than I hoped, but the end is in sight and I am excited to, finally, take Candice out into the world.


She was a fascinating woman and I'm looking forward to sharing her story.

We are on track to complete the film for early 2019.
