Adriana Eskenazi is one of the people in Barcelona I like best. She’s always late, but she takes beautiful photographs and she’s my friend, so I can’t ask for more.
One of her clients is Erika Lust, the Barcelona production company that has made a name for itself with the motto “porn for women,” feminine and feminist. A not very common declaration of principles in the industry of adult films, and that Erika Lust tries to follow to a T. To begin with, during the shooting there were almost exclusively women, from the director to her assistant, the focus puller and the director of photography. I’d say the only exception were the electricians.
Erika Lust offered Adriana the possibility of directing one of her X Confessions, a series of short films with explicit sex. When Adriana told me about it, I offered to create the title credits. For a while I’d been wanting to do something with projections on naked bodies and this seemed like a good opportunity.
