Volunteers Wanted – Director’s Cut

DE/ES 2019, 72 Min., engl. OV
Von/By: Ron Rex
Mit/with: Kali Sudhra, Jiz Lee, Finn Peaks & Team & Filmemacher*innen des Pornfilmfestival Berlin 2018

Last year, a team from feminist porn producer Erika Lust shot this film as part of the 13th Pornfilmfestival, which is now celebrating its world premiere with us in an exclusive Director’s Cut version. Kali, a performer and sex worker, comes to Berlin to visit the Pornfilmfestival. After a shooting with Jiz Lee she falls in love with the self-proclaimed “glitterfag” Finn Peaks. While they wander through the festival hustle and bustle and the Berlin nightlife, the fleeting couple tells stories about their work, their place in society and the difficulties of their personal relationships. “Volunteers Wanted” is a hybrid of documentary and feature film in which all the performers play themselves. Filmed in HD and 16 mm, the film (shown in an exclusive director’s cut) documents the unique utopian space that the Pornfilmfestival opens every year in October for six days.

„Poesie wie Brot? Dieses Brot müsste zwischen den Zähnen knirschen und den Hunger wiedererwecken, ehe es ihn stillt. Und diese Poesie wird scharf von Erkenntnis und bitter von Sehnsucht sein müssen, um an den Schlaf der Menschen rühren zu können. Wir schlafen ja, sind Schläfer, aus Furcht, uns und unsere Welt wahrnehmen zu können.“ (Ingeborg Bachmann)

“To live is the rarest thing in the world. Most people exist, that is all. Either kill me or take me as I am, because I’ll be damned if I ever change.” (Oscar Wilde)

Political + Sex Work Shorts. 82’

The pornographic remains political. This program focuses on the bodies as the struggle for self-determination and self-representation goes on. Sex work is work, and there is still a long way to go to end the stigma and discrimination sex workers face. The protagonists set an example on how to do it with humor and creativity.
