Birth of Pleasure Atlanta Premiere @ Plaza

We invite you to the Atlanta Premiere of "Birth of Pleasure", a film by Lev Omelchenko and Anicka Austin.

"Birth of Pleasure" is an erotic narrative disco-ballet film. Through a radical retelling of the "Psyche and Cupid" myth, it explores the politics of sensuality, femininity in a myriad of forms, and the passing on of traditional methods of coping

"Birth of Pleasure" is part of the sunday morning at 7 project and is an adaptation of a live performance "Sanctuaries & Fortresses" by Anicka Austin, which premiered May 17th, 2018 at The Bakery Atlanta.

Starring: Ruchi Ahuja, Sharon Carelock, Indya Childs, Jennifer Clark, Bella Dorado, Miriam Golomb, Christina Kelly, Pierce Lackey, Rebekah Pleasant and Hez Stalcup.

Cinematography by Amber L. N. Bournett. Music by Chris Gravely and Saira Raza.
