My First Porn Film

A film by

the Netherlands | 28' | 08/2016 | documentary

A new generation of young adults grew up with the ease of having the Internet. In the documentary My First Porn Film two guys in their early twenties make a plan to create their very first porn movie. What should that film look like? Hard and aggressive like the porn that they know from the Internet? Or maybe soft, with love and an enticing story as an antidote to all impersonal and ruthless porn which they grown up with?

Vincent Boy Kars


Since graduating from the AKV St. Joost Academy in 2015, documentary director Vincent Boy Kars has made a name for himself by focusing on documentaries in which he investigates topics such as identity, self-image and sexuality. He often examines these elements in the context of the digital age and the way in which the connected era has a vital role in these aspects of human life. Being himself part of the first generation that is dealing with the endless possibilities of the Internet, he is highly driven to reveal the consequences of this phenomenon.

In his directing, Vincent always aims to challenge and play with the construction of the form. In this sense he encourages the viewer to consider questions such as ‘what is real / unreal’, ‘what do we experience as authentic and true’, and ‘when is a documentary staged and acted’?

The young director’s distinct visual language is influenced by this approach, and he is flirting with the borders between fiction and reality. His directing debut ‘My First Porn’ is an example of Vincent’s philosophy. In 2017 documentary ‘Independent Boy’, in which the underlying theme is to challenge society’s definition of success, premieres at IDFA.
