Join us for an intimate screening of this documentary short exploring the role of sex workers and their enjoyment of the field.
The event will begin with an introduction by Director, Manasa Visakai. This intro will include what drew her to the subject and what inspired the short.
The theme behind this documentary is to promote the idea-every profession by choice must be respected. Thus this 6 minute documentary depicts a male sex worker who lives by the concept, ‘sex work is work.’ You may ask me, “Why male sex worker?” The simple answer to this is, male sex workers in the industry came across as a very surprising thing to me. I have heard multiple stories of female sex workers and I thought this was my time to show the world a different perception of the sex industry.
There are many known stories wherein people are forced/trafficked into the sex industry, however, the protagonist in this film narrates a different tale.
This doco embarks on this Aussie male sex-worker who loves his job and wishes to become an entrepreneur, the criticisms he faces and the power to overcome them. This documentary ends with a moral lesson from the protagonist that’ll blow your mind.
Following the screening, there will be an open discussion about sex work and we will be encouraging audience members to direct questions to both the Director and the male protagonist/professional sex worker whom the film is based around.
- This will be a chance to support independent filmmakers whilst exploring a somewhat taboo subject.
- Guests will have the opportunity to witness an indie short, and have discussions with not only the Director but also the male protagonist as they discuss their involvement in the project. There will be a Q & A with both people.
