Pornography is art, a dramatic art, experimental, where characters are striped naked of their personality, and the story is striped to its core essentials – the interaction and play of active/passive and passive/active. Pornography is essential storytelling. 3 acts, same place, no jumps in time. Porn is subtle poetry. Porn is tragedy. It respect all that Aristotle is. It is cathartic. All other stories are dilutions of Porn. Are euphemisms of porn. Are desperate, painful attempts to touch the same intensity, purity and catharsis. Monotonous, repetitive, again and again and again only to be transgressed, only to be sublimated. Porn is possible only in a pure society. In a humane world. The pornography that I am talking is already post-porn in a post-ironic world.
I am looking for a few people with whom to make an underground poetic porn film.
A film about becoming many. About sharing ourselves through our bodies into pure body-mind-soul-nothingness. About the hardships of transgressing these borders. The journey to nothingness is such a difficult one. Is a journey of amputation.
I am very interested in sexuality and the sexual experiences between people because they are the most intimate and powerful and transgressive of all. And they are less social than wholesome.
I am ready to pay some of the actors, it will be my first payed project although I would love to make it no-budget because it would be in the true spirit of the project.
I will rent a place for 1 month where we can rehearse, play, discover and film.
We all need poetry, we all need porn.
The project will be filmed in Romania in a, not yet chosen, small city. I am gravitating towards an almost forgotten town, an old spa town with natural mineral waters in the mountains, now in ruins – Borsec. It is a very mysterious and magical place surrounded by weird natural formations that I would love to use as backdrops.
