Watch Party: Water Makes Us Wet: An Ecosexual Adventure

October 9 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Free - £8
Two people, one with long bright red hair and dramatic black attire and one with short hair dressed butch casual, stand hand in hand knee deep in a lake with a hill filled with trees beyond it.

With a poetic blend of curiosity, humour, sensuality, and concern, this film chronicles the pleasures and politics of H2O from an ecosexual perspective. Travel with Annie, a former sex worker, Beth, a professor, and their dog Butch, in their E.A.R.T.H. Lab mobile unit, as they explore the role of water. Ecosexuality shifts the metaphor “Earth as Mother” to “Earth as Lover” to create a more reciprocal and empathetic relationship with the natural world. Along the way, Annie and Beth interact with a diverse range of folks including performance artists, biologists, water treatment plant workers, scholars and others, climaxing in a shocking event that reaffirms the power of water, life and the earth. Narrated by Sandy Stone. Watch party hosted by Samar Ziadat.

Water Makes Us Wet will also be available on SQIFF’s Vimeo on Demand channel between 5 and 18 October.
