“Erika Lust Films is based in Barcelona and has been since it\’s birth. The XConfessions films are mainly shot here, although with the introduction of Guest Directors on the project we are also commissioning shoots in London – we have had three so far and wish to pursue more. We also have a born and bred Londoner in the office and International women from across the globe whose passion for Barcelona has brought them here.”
Erika Lust is a prolific award-winning, ethical, adult filmmaker.
Based in Barcelona, born in 1977 in Sweden, Erika Lust studied political sciences, feminism and gender studies. 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. Erika has since then directed three multi-awarded erotic films: Five Hot Stories for Her, Life Love Lust and Cabaret Desire. She also directed the experimental documentary Barcelona Sex Project and wrote several books.
In 2013 Erika Lust launched the innovative project XConfessions, a collection of crowdsourced explicit short films with high cinematic production values. XConfessions is featured in big media all over the world and establishes Erika as a filmmaker with great skills to portray human nature through the narrative of desire, and a unique talent to merge eroticism with witty comedy.
