Rule 34

September 16, 2023

Of everything that exists, there is also a pornographic variant on the Internet. This is Rule 34. During the day, 23-year-old law student Simone (Sol Miranda) rigorously discusses the role of women in Brazilian society. She works at a centre for victims of domestic violence and researches the causes of racism and feminicide. At night, she performs in front of her webcam in a sex chat room and ventures into even more precarious practices as the lines between body empowerment and self-harm, social responsibility and personal pleasure blur. A challenging, uncomfortable, and exhilarating exploration of the murky boundaries between politics and the pursuit of pleasure.

Content Warning: Contains graphic scenes of a sexual nature, discussion of domestic abuse and sexual violence, and depictions of BDSM.
