Finding Cochino

No other man achieved as much glory, recognition, and admiration, as George Magee. You remember him as El Cochino. But what happened to him?

Winner of five awards at CineSol Film Festival 2008 including Best Film, Finding Cochino is a joint production of Bad Apple and Orange Media for the 2008 CineSol 36 Hour Film Race.


George “El Cochino” Magee was the adult film industry’s brightest star until he fell in love with Indian starlette Nicky on the set of his finest film: “The Savage Garden”. After production wrapped Nicky returned to her home in India and, in a fit of depression, Magee lost control of his world famous manhood. But film maker Stewart Krasdacab needs “El Cochino” back and he knows exactly how to do it.
