Artsploitation Films Unveils Jean-Francois Davy’s ‘Chasing the Muse’

PHILADELPHIA — Some of legendary French adult filmmaker Jean-Francois Davy’s most popular titles are set to be re-released as a special DVD, spanning the artist’s career.

Artsploitation Films is presenting two of Jean-Francois Davy’s best films in one DVD set (and in selected VOD outlets), creating a cinematic bookend of his career. The set includes his latest work, the X-rated 2014 documentary, “Chasing the Muse,” along with a new digitally restored Director’s Cut of one of Davy’s earliest and most celebrated works, 1974’s “Exhibition.”

“Chasing the Muse” (formerly titled “Transgression”) follows the now 70-year-old filmmaker as he travels through Eastern Europe in search of a new star for his upcoming feature.

“Exhibition” was, on its initial release in 1975, a pornographic blockbuster highlighting the Porno Chic craze when it was selected for the 1975 Cannes Film Festival, the New York Film Festival, and the Los Angeles Film Festival.

The two-film DVD will be released on October 6.
