Uuuh, wait, what? What about the sex and privacy?!
We are aware of the vulnerable space that we enter. We therefore will take a lot of precautions. First, the documentary will focus on Janina and some of her team, we will not show the guests. The film team will mostly shoot during set-up and build-down and during a separate workshop on Sunday including only those who explicitly want to be in the documentary.
Second, the crew will take greatest care to not film anybody by accident – we will not film people in the background or avoid situations where people could accidentally step into the picture. We will not show anybody in any uncomfortable or exposing way.
Why do we want to do this movie?
After 3 months of limitations due to COVID-19 we feel it is a very special moment. We are one of the first sex-positive spaces opening again. We want to capture this unique moment. Another aim is to give an insight into the sex-positive world and to make this bubble a bit more understandable and accessible for people outside of it.
Quick recap of all the following points:
We will not film any guests except they explicitly ask for being in the movie. We will shoot during the set-up, the preparations, the build-down, some scenes with Janina, the performances and a separate workshop on Sunday especially for the shooting. If you want to be part of this movie we will ask for your signature to manifest your consent. The focus of the movie lies on Janina, who is the organizer of the Parallel Universe and a sex-positive activist.
