Behind the scene at SWEAT! A Film by Noel Alejandro
#MustSeeOfTheWeek – “SWEAT”. Noel Alejandro’s personal questioning of the boundaries for depicting violence in pornography has brought him to portray male-on-male physical combat on his last released SWEAT featuring Jesse Charfi and Parker Marx.
Focused on inserting polemic topics into his erotic film scriptwriting, Noel decided it’s time to ignite the debate on whether or not is possible to mix violence and pornography. Following short films that mix sex and depression, loneliness or even mourning, SWEAT emerges as an uncomfortable story on which the viewer is led to take their own conclusions on whether what he’s watching is real – or just another performance of a regular violent movie scene.
Known for pushing the boundaries of gay erotica, Noel Alejandro taps into the conflicting emotions associated with the use of force in pornographic films.
