Nao quits her current job and exchanges safety for excitement by becoming a camgirl. While selling her erotic performances online to the anonymous users of the porn platforms, she slowly discovers herself as a sex worker, an artist and a woman.
International Film Festival "Filmmaker" - "Prospettive" Competition - Special Mention
While researching literature on underlying themes relevant for the film, I came across a text that defined gender stereotypes as "The Little Soul Murderers." This is how they named the various expectations that are determined by belonging to one sex. The simplest example boils down to how women are supposed to be pure, while males stoic and protective. In my opinion, a girl who decides to eroticize her body for an income clashes precisely with society's expectations of what women should be, of how we should behave and how we should use our bodies. While doing this film, I felt my understanding of what this precisely means gain depth and complexity. This film is a portrait of Nao herself reasoning about her own body, breaking beyond these expectation, not only concerning work, but also in the way that she uses her body as a matter for her artistic research. Throughout the film, staying close to our protagonist at all times, the world of cam is slowly uncovered and as the scenes progress, Nao's reasoning and motivations made during this journey are deepened, whether it is the frustrations that start from her previous work experiences or not being ashamed once she recognizes her need to be desired.
