Pioneer Feminist Pornographer set to tell all in upcoming biopic, WHILE YOU WERE GONE: the Untold Story of Candida Royalle

Fundraising Campaign launched to raise budget.

"This is a story that is both complicated and simple. Titillating and taboo. Relatable and foreign. And it's a story that hasn't been told."

Candice was only 18 months old when her mother left home, leaving a scar in the heart of a girl and the woman she would become. Through her unorthodox childhood in New York City and her early training in performance arts, through her starring roles as Candida Royalle in adult films and her pioneering work as a producer of erotic films, through her design collaborations and her writing, through her public speaking and her battle with ovarian cancer... the question was always there. Why did you leave me?

That question is at the heart of a new documentary project about the life of Candida Royalle, a woman who refused to be defined by the labels we use to understand a complex past. For those who would like to learn more, watch the moving trailer for the documentary and donate: whileyouweregonefilm.wordpress.com
