(W/HOLE) Episode 6 – Rent


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.

(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.
