OB SCENE

Argentina / 2021 / 18’
French Premiere

Paloma Orlandini Castro
“A uterus, two fallopian tubes, an ovary”. A table, a pair of black, latex gloves, a sexology manual and a black box. Like a porn researcher, Paloma Orlandini Castro offers us an essay on sexuality: a quasi-scientific device with the invention of a cunning box which analyses pornographic images. While her hands manipulate diagrams and drawings her voice recounts the stand-out moments of her sexual journey and dissects the classifications and violence of current mainstream porn imagery. Ob Scena: obscene or opposite the stage. In the end, by exposing herself during rehearsals for a performance, facing the audience, Paloma Orlandini Castro manages to find a kind of liberation.
