‘I Am Katrina’ Is Part Porn, Part Documentary

Midway through I Am Katrina, director and co-star Francesca Le asks Katrina Jade what she is willing to do on camera.

Choking? Katrina nods. Spanking? “Yes!” Hairpulling? More yes. Spitting? Katrina’s eyes brighten as she says, “You can even smear it across my face!” “You’re okay with ass-to-mouth, pussy-to-ass?” Katrina doesn’t hesitate: “Yes!” It turns out that Katrina’s “no list” is vanishingly small, containing only two things: nipple pinching and face slapping. (And she’s flexible on that second one.)

The Evil Angel showcase I Am Katrina is another item on Jade’s voluminous “yes list,” and it gives interesting insights into the star in addition to four porn scenes. The movie presents Jade collaborations with Jonni Darkko, LeWood, Aiden Starr and John Stagliano, all while taking fans behind the scenes of Jade’s life and her off-set interactions with the filmmakers in question.

Beginnings

“I was watching this porn one time and I thought, ‘I’m gonna try that,'” Jade says early in the movie. “It was more about experiencing how it would be, what it would be like.” While she admits she did not take her porn career particularly seriously in the early days, she is now focused on creating a long-term career and brand in the industry. Her duo of blockbuster 2017 movies, first AE FilmsVillain and now I Am Katrina, will likely go a long way in bolstering that brand. In the movie’s opening sequence, Jonni Darkko describes Jade as a “dynamo” and notes that her signature bit of ink sums up her fearlessness: “When you go out of your way to tattoo ‘slut’ on your ass, it’s pretty much a confirmation of what you are, what you really are. No one puts ‘slut’ on their ass or their body and is a prude.”

Jade’s archly conservative mother and her party-animal father also both left their mark.  “I get my girliness from my mom, which makes me really bitchy and demanding, and then I get the tomboy side from my dad,” Jade says. Her high school years were beset with problems as Jade struggled to find her place in the world. “I was drunk all the time. I went to actual high school for less than a year and a half. I did my first year and then right away my second year I got kicked out, because I got blacked-out wasted,” she notes.

Working with couples

I Am Katrina pairs Jade with Francesca Le and Mark Wood (known by their portmanteau of LeWood on Evil Angel box covers) for the first time. No stranger to the complexities of maintaining a relationship while being a pornstar, Jade tries to keep things professional. “I’m always very cautious around couples, because I know what it’s like to have someone interfere or cross boundaries with your marriage, so I never want to be the one to do that,” she says in an interview segment. “I’m here to have sex and I’m here to have fun. I do not give a fuck enough to cross anybody else’s boundaries because I don’t want to – I want to have fun.”

Katrina & Buttman (aka John Stagliano)

After frolicking with LeWood and Aiden Starr, Jade joins forces with another porn legend. The movie features the fun bonus of a classic John Stagliano Buttman segment, shown from its pitch and inception in Stagliano’s office all way through the actual beachfront shoot. (An earlier scene, featured during the Aiden Starr segments of the movie, shows Jade and Venus Lux leaving a naughty note in his Evil Angel office.) Though Stagliano is initially reluctant, Jade’s promise of intense chemistry with Kissa Sins wins him over. “We have a really strong connection because we grew up the same and ended up being the same person. So, hence why when we have sex, it’s insanity,” Jade enthuses at one point. “Our fantasy is to kill each other during sex. To actually die.”

What’s next

Where do you go after the one-two punch of Villain and I Am Katrina? Katrina admits she isn’t sure, but she knows that she’s going to love every minute of the ride. “The industry is constantly changing, so I can’t really say what I’m going to do, because I don’t know where the industry is going. But I do want to stay!” she says. “I want to be the reason why people do bad things. I feel like that’s what I want my legacy to be.”
