Water Makes Us Wet
September 10, 2018 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm - $15 – $35
The VORTEX proudly presents the Austin premiere of Water Makes Us Wet: An Ecosexual Adventure, a sexy, fun, diverse, environmental activist film directed by artist/partners Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens, narrated by trans icon Sandy Stone, and featuring a diverse range of folks including performance artists, biologists, water treatment plant workers, and scholars. This film chronicles the pleasures and politics of H2O from an ecosexual perspective. The VORTEX has been pleased to host Annie Sprinkle and Beth Stephens work for more than two decades, and we are thrilled that they will be here in person for the Austin premiere.
Join other pleasure activists and artists in a celebratory screening at The VORTEX, a longstanding hotbed of art, activism, and ecosexuality. One night only—Monday, September 10, 2018 8pm. The film will be followed by a Q&A with filmmakers Sprinkle and Stephens.
In the film, we travel around with Annie, a former sex worker, and Beth, a professor of art, and their dog Butch, in their E.A.R.T.H. Lab mobile unit, as they explore water in all its glorious forms. Ecosexuality shifts the metaphor “Earth as Mother” to “Earth as Lover” to create a more reciprocal and empathetic relationship with the natural world. When their road trip climaxes in a shocking event, their affectionate partnership with the Earth saves the day, reuniting their family, and affirming the power of water, life, and love.
For Mature Audiences only– 21 and over.
When: September 10, 2018 8pm
