The blurb: In a distant future world, where water and air are contaminated, and it is prohibited to touch one another, a girl and a boy decide to go to a beach.
In the age of COVID, this film hits home. Physical distancing means that the simple human experience of touch is unavailable to many. I also liked that the depiction of “sex” was about female pleasure, something which is still not that common.
Touch Me was created in the context of ENTER project, an initiative of Onassis Foundation, which artists from all around the world 120 hours to create from home a series of new original commissions; sharing their new reality. It was created in July 2020.
