Manuel Abramovich : El oasis
Synopsis: "Why do you want to do porn?" they ask at the casting. "Because I love to feign pleasure". How does pleasure itself become a performance? If an adult film actor transforms their sexuality into a show, where do they find true pleasure.
"El Oasis is a film on the construction of intimacy as a show. This is also the second piece of a trilogy that I am producing on the male body used as a business, focused on pornography and sex work in three cities (Berlin, Mexico City, and Buenos Aires). I am interested in the porn industry as a context to talk about sex in a world where the self is constructed by others, where we must be connected to exist and be seen. How does the body itself become a performance? How does pleasure act?".
