Mysterious nocturnal gatherings have been unsettling the good citizens of Rome for quite some time, stories of immoralities of all kinds are being whispered behind closed doors. While the senate tries to regain control over the events, not everyone is repelled by what they hear. BACCHANALIA follows one curious soul on their quest for the rite of the God of wine, drunkenness and ecstasy.
Throwback to April 2019 when we were in Italy for the 48H project of Hacker Pornfilmfestival Rome.
The job: Create one badass short film within two days! So director Doxytocine wrote a story placed in Ancient Rome, where the so-called Bacchus cult threatened the wealth of the state with their infamous orgies of wine, blood and frenzy.
For one day, we recreated this cult. Luckily, we could use the old walls of Forte Prenestino, a large Roman squat and social centre. The following day consisted of: editing, editing, editing. We were working in shifts until the very last second, until we all looked like zombies. Anyway: After 48 hours, we had a beautiful short film finished. Cuming soon to a festival near you!
PS: Did we mention it’s probably the first porn in Latin language ever?
The short film has been at various festivals lately and is available online now for free.
