LOS ANGELES, CA – (OCTOBER 21, 2011) – Wicked Pictures is pleased to announce that the University of California at Santa Barbara hosted a successful screening of Sam Hain’s spectacular AVN Editor’s Choice Horizon Wednesday night. Held at the prestigious Carsey-Wolf Center’s Pollock Theater, the well-attended screening featured appearances by jessica drake, Kaylani Lei, Alektra Blue, director Hain and producer Lee Roy Myers. An official UCSB Department of Film and Media Studies event, the screening was followed by a Q&A session and reception which gave the students and faculty multiple opportunities to speak to Hain, Myers, and the lovely ladies of Horizon. For his part, Hain relished the experience of bringing his epic science fiction adventure to UCSB. “The film was received very enthusiastically, and after the screening, student after student told me they had never seen an adult film of this quality!” Professor Constance Penley, Co-Director of the Carsey-Wolf Center, echoes the director’s observations. "The students were thrilled to see such a high-quality film in the state-of-the-art Pollock Theater. They were also thrilled to get a chance to talk to the director, producer, and talent about their experiences in making Horizon, first in the Q & A and then at the reception in the Michael Douglas Lobby." A noted film professor and porn-studies pioneer, Professor Penley’s forward-thinking, sex-positive work has been profiled in such publications as TIME and Rolling Stone. She was delighted to share Hain's cutting-edge Wicked Pictures production with her class. "The students were astonished at Horizon's level of creative achievement, especially since they are used to seeing movies that look like Hain's film but cost tens of millions or even hundreds of millions of dollars." Yet while she was understandably impressed by Horizon’s technical achievements, she saves her highest praise for Hain, Myers, and the Wicked Girls themselves. "I am grateful to Sam, Lee Roy, jessica, Alektra, and Kaylani for their generosity toward our students. All the exceptionally talented people behind Horizon were forthcoming, thoughtful, and inspiring. Nothing like porn stars to make you think!" Horizon is available in a Blu-ray/DVD/Digital Combo Pack exclusively from Wicked Pictures. ### About Horizon A high-tech step into the year 2085, Horizon unfolds as a civilization of extraterrestrial origin has invaded Earth.
