  • 57-year-old video director Ira Isaacs faces what may be the most extreme obscenity trial in U.S. history. Last July, the Department of Justice's Obscenity Prosecution Task Force hit Isaacs with an eight-count federal obscenity indictment. On the eve of his trial, Susannah Breslin speaks to the director about why his work is really art, what happens when the Feds come for you, and how his story is like Kafka.

    Fair warning: We're talking about a guy whose oeuvre includes works like Laurie's Toilet Show and Gang Bang Horse (Pony Sex Game). Readers of delicate sensibilities should think twice before clicking here for the story.
