Her Private Hell (BFI) in February
The BFI have announced the UK Dual Format Edition release of Her Private Hell as the next release in their Flipside strand. Available from 20th February 2012, the film is a cautionary tale of an innocent girl abroad caught up in London’s sleazy world of modelling. The release features a new, director-approved High Definition transfer along with a wealth of rare extra features and a comprehensive booklet.
Starring the Italian actress Lucia Modugno (Il generale Della Rovere, Danger: Diabolik), and directed by Norman J Warren, Her Private Hell put Britain on the map in the realm of home-grown adult features. The storyline features beautiful but naïve Marisa who arrives from the continent for a job as a fashion model, but soon discovers she’s being groomed for a different purpose.
