Home » 2021 Films » Larry Flynt for President

A documentary that captures the larger-than-life Hustler magazine publisher’s campaign to become America’s “first porno president,” and upset Ronald Reagan’s 1984 re-election bid. Drawn from archived footage of an incomplete chronicle of Flynt’s quixotic mission, and reassembled by director Nadia Szold, it parallels the chaotic events that were fictionalized in Milos Forman’s double Oscar-nominated The People vs. Larry Flynt. Szold, working from footage originally produced by Steve Lindsey, adds contemporary interviews with Flynt’s associates and solicited a few words from the man himself, before his death earlier this year.
