FilmBuff releases a new documentary that dives into the infamous Hustler Magazine from inception to success and the many battles in between.

Back Issues: The Hustler Magazine Story

“BACK ISSUES” will launch in the United States through Video On Demand on July 15, 2014. Director and writer Michael Lee Nirenberg (“SALT,” “THE WRESTLER,”) and writer Flynn Hundhausen present an insider’s perspective through the lens of Hustler’s former Art and Creative Director, William Nirenberg, the director’s father.

Back Issues chronicles Hustler’s history through interviews with former employees, models, Larry Flynt, lawyers, and the magazine’s art department. It also looks at the significant controversies Hustler faced and continues to face, including the consistent First Amendment and legal battles, the attempted assassination of Larry Flynt, and the company’s changing ethos. As the notion of offensiveness and availability of pornography constantly changes, is Hustler still the champion of hardcore?

FilmBuff will exhibit the film on all leading On Demand platforms including: iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Vudu, Google Play, XBOX Video, and Sony PlayStation.
