Black & White & Sex is a 2011 feature film produced by Melissa Beauford. It is the directorial debut of John Winter, best known as the producer of Rabbit Proof Fence, Paperback Hero and Doing Time for Patsy Cline. The film premiered at the Sydney Film Festival in June 2011 with its international premiere at the 41st International Film Festival Rotterdam (2012).
Black & White & Sex follows a film-within-a-film structure. The entire 94 minutes is a two hander interview between a documentary filmmaker (played by Matthew Holmes) and a sex worker, Angie. Eight different facets of Angie's personality are exposed by eight actresses: Katherine Hicks, Anya Beyersdorf, Valerie Bader, Roxane Wilson, Michelle Vergara Moore, Dina Panozzo, Saskia Burmeister and Maia Thomas.
As the name suggests, Black & White & Sex is shot entirely in black and white.
Black & White & Sex was shot using a four-camera set up. Each scene was rehearsed before the shoot, but not on the day of the shoot. This meant the actors were "free to roam and be very much in the moment".
Black & White & Sex premiered at the Sydney Film Festival on Saturday 18 June 2011. It was listed by several bloggers and publications as one of the top 5 films that must be seen at the Festival. It was picked up by distributor Titan View, who released the film in Australia/New Zealand in 2012, and by international sales agent, Shoreline Entertainment.
The film had its international premiere at the 41st International Film Festival Rotterdam. followed by a number of other festivals including selection in the New Talent Competition at the Taipei Film Festival
