Grooby's 'All My Mother's Lovers' Wins Toronto Porn Festival Award

LOS ANGELES — Grooby’s “All My Mother’s Lovers,” directed by Mona Wales and Arabelle Raphael, took home the “Most Tantalizing Trans Film” award at the Toronto International Porn Festival this past weekend.

“We really love Mona’s work and were excited to see her and Arabelle sharing directorial duties for ‘All My Mother’s Lovers,’” said Steven Grooby. “As a fan of cinema and, in particular, their inspiration ‘Stealing Beauty’ with Liv Tyler, I think they assembled the perfect cast to capture the romanticism of the original movie. This is a really groundbreaking addition to our genre.”

Grooby’s Marketing and editorial director Kristel Penn added, “Mona and Arabelle were both kind enough to speak about filming ‘All My Mother’s Lovers’ at a workshop I co-facilitated on destigmatizing porn at Kink back in March. They eloquently discussed the importance of authenticity and diversity in narratives in trans porn and worked diligently to make sure those ideas were translated on-screen.”

The “cumming-of-age” story follows young Freya Wynn as she follows her mother’s (Delia Delions) footsteps to the front door of a lesbian commune and into the arms of her mother’s beautiful lovers (Mona Wales, Arabelle Raphael, Mandy Mitchell and Bianca Stone).
