Coming soon from AORTA films:
(W/HOLE) episodes 1-10
(W/HOLE) explores the incredible potency of queer hedonism, specifically how the authentic performativity of kink and queer porn can evolve trauma into orgasm, and grief into politically radical, transformative, body-based joy. (W/HOLE) investigates the complexity of pleasure, exploring the so-called obscenity of bodies in their most tremendous capacity—their glorious, illicit humanity. Amidst ecstatic water balloon fights, opulent feasts devoured without utensils, narrations of pleasure, lewd hand gestures, densely scored orgies, improvisational performance, and intense kink dynamics, (W/HOLE) proposes a new type of pornography: a world of queer sex that is at once surreally lush and intensely real.
Over the next year, AORTA films will be releasing our feature film (W/HOLE) as a 10-episode set. Comprised of 18 scenes and two additional bonus scenes, this film explores queer pleasure by colliding explicit queer porn, performance art, and dance together create an altogether unique form. These episodes are definitely a bit different from the monthly shorts we’ve been producing—this project explores questions of what is erotic and why and how, and uses both porn and art to showcase the complexity of queer joy. We hope you’ll give it a try with an open mind, and come on this adventure with us as it unfolds over the next year. We plan on supplementing any of the less-explicit episodes with some exceptionally lusty short films. We’ve got your porn cravings covered!

Episode 2: Slow Lift, Fuck You/Fuck Me, and Solo Score: Trouble Clef
Episode two begins with a heavy duet, transitions into a litany of “fuck”s, and ends with a fragmented improvisation.
Erykah Ohms and Parts Authority collide and are instantly confronted with the weight of each other and must grapple with how to let go. Parts and Ohms finish, and the scene shifts to Parts, Trouble Clef, the Shape and Special Guest seated around a large table, improvising a landscape of “fucks.” They express despair, desire, anger, pleasure, before Clef begins a stream of conscious improvisation through gesture, words and memory. She shares fragments and jumps quickly from one moment to the next.
