Café Flesh is a 1982 post-apocalyptic cult pornographic science fiction film designed and directed by Stephen Sayadian (under the pseudonym “Rinse Dream”) and co-written by Sayadian and Jerry Stahl (credited as “Herbert W. Day”). Music was composed and produced by noted music producer Mitchell Froom (and later appeared in his album, Key of Cool).
“Stephen Sayadian, also known as Rinse Dream is a writer, production-designer and director active in the 1980s and early 1990s. He began his career as a creative director for Larry Flynt Publications. His satirical and bizarre style was instrumental in the development and success of Hustler Magazine. He is best known for his stylish, surrealistic, and off-kilter approach to videos and films such as Café Flesh, Nightdreams parts 1,2,3, and Party-Doll-A-Go-Go parts 1,2. His work is now considered highly innovative and ahead of its time, in many ways anticipating the later wave of alt porn that emerged in the early 2000s. Café Flesh, in particular, stands out for its strong production values and detailed plot, elements rarely seen in adult films. The film was a crossover hit on the midnight-movie circuit for many years. He also directed the 1989 cult movie Dr. Caligari, a remake of the 1919 silent classic. The film premiered as an opening night selection (midnight madness) at the Toronto Film Festival. In addition to film and video, he’s also designed and directed for television and the legitimate stage. His print work has appeared in many publications including Zoom.” – Wiki
