Jennifer Lyon Bell
Forever wishing that all movies had longer and more explicit sex scenes, Harvard graduate Jennifer Lyon Bell decided to mix arthouse cinema with hot explicit sex in her own work. Now the founder of Blue Artichoke Films, she creates erotic fiction films and documentaries that illuminate the riveting, intimate, and sometimes delightfully awkward side of sex. In short, she’s making the films that she herself would most like to watch. Her films win international awards at both porn festivals and art-film festivals, and have screened everywhere from primetime television to London’s Institute of Contemporary Arts.
