A film by Tove Pils

Hanna leaves her family and girlfriend behind to go to the city of her dreams, San Francisco, where she hopes to explore her sexuality. Soon she meets the professional dominatrix Chloe and Cyd, who works as an escort for gay men. A door into a new world opens up for Hanna, and together with Chloe and Cyd, she begins a journey which takes her further and further away from her life and family in Sweden.

The director Tove Pils has been documenting the lives of Hanna, Chloe and Cyd for over a decade. Through an intimately present camera, a queer community that challenges the view of sex and work is explored. Hanna’s striking emotional journey is intertwined with her friends’ stories and creates a patchwork of a group of people who have found their home in each other.

A film by Göran Hugo Olsson and Roxy Farhat An engrossing and humorous adaptation of Guy Debord’s 1967 essay La Société du Spectacle, unpacking the fucktangular dynamics of alienation, powerlessness and emptiness under the tr(i)ump(h) of capitalism and information technology.
