(W/HOLE) Episode 2 – Rent

$3.99

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.

(W/HOLE) is an evening-length film created by queer/feminist porn collective AORTA films in collaboration with performance company the A.O. Movement Collective, exploring 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. The film investigates the complexity of pleasure, exploring the so-called obscenity of bodies in their most tremendous capacity—their glorious, illicit humanity.

(W/HOLE) premiered at the Invisible Dog Art Center and has won Best Film (Fiction) at the Vienna Porn Film Festival, Best Feature at the Hacker Porn Film Festival in Rome, additionally screening at the London Porn Film Festival (closing film), BRIEFS erotic short film competition, BU Festival, LADYFEST Maastricht, Los Angeles Underground Film Forum, SECS Fest, and the Berlin Porn Film Festival.
