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 6: HOWL + Lawn Sequence
In turn, cast members release pain in howls, and spill white salt into endless blackness; in the bright light of day, the group starts an exuberant water-balloon fight.
In a dark room, lit with bare filament bulbs, an abstract eulogy is embodied through howls and the slicing of hanging bags of salt by Parts Authority, Trouble Clef, Special Guest, Erykah Ohms, the Shape, Shay Knox, Evie Snax, Papi Femme, Ginny Woolf, and Alice the Wolfe. In sharp contrast, (W/HOLE) switches quickly to a slow motion landscape where each performer squirms, laughs, and yelps in shock as they get pelted by water balloons. Water drips, streams, and pours down exultant bodies.
Coming June 1st!
