A video exploration of the essay 'La Pute Arabe' from issue 2 of Phile Magazine written by Ashkan Sepahvand about his sexual experiences as a Persian American man in Paris. He writes about the continued impact of colonial power structures on the perception of "the Arab" within French culture and how gay pornography shot in the Banlieue of Paris has reinforced that class divide.
