Among the most unusual and powerful erotic films ever made, “Gone” is set to screen at New York’s CineKink 2016 film festival on Saturday, March 5.
Produced and directed by Sssh.com founder Angie Rowntree, “Gone” is “perhaps the most significant porn film this reviewer has ever seen,” according to critic Rich Moreland.
The screening begins at 5:30 p.m. at Anthology Film Archive in East Village, 32 2nd Avenue, New York, 10003. Tickets to the screening are $10, or free for those with all-access festival passes. Purchase tickets here, as seating is limited. Attendees must be 18 or over for admission.
Adult reviewer Rich Moreland’s sentiment about “Gone” is echoed in numerous positive reviews, and reflected by the film’s nomination for multiple awards, including the AVN Award for Best Drama and XBIZ Award for Couples-Themed Release of the Year. Watch the trailer for Sssh.com here.
‘Gone’ to screen at New York’s CineKink Film Festival on March 5
Featuring breakout performances by real-life couple Madeline Blue and Gee Richards, “Gone” relates the story of Rebecca and Todd Adams, a couple deeply in love, but destined for the saddest of partings. The lushly erotic sex scenes are amplified by Rebecca’s pain and angst, which drive the film forward with tremendous emotion and pathos.
“I’m extremely excited to have ‘Gone’ screened at CineKink, a film festival I consider to be a true kindred spirit to Sssh.com, as we both encourage positive and affirming depictions of sexuality in erotica,” said “Gone” director and producer Angie Rowntree. “I’m especially pleased to have the opportunity for the CineKink audience to experience the incredible performances offered by Madeline and Gee, who really poured their heart and souls into ‘Gone,’ making it possible for me to realize my vision for the film.”
A Profound Story of Love & Loss from Sssh.com, Award-Nominated ‘Gone’ Is Changing the Landscape of Erotic Cinema!
In “Gone,” the viewer experiences the couple’s story through Rebecca’s eyes, relayed as a series of flashes depicting private moments past she spent with Todd, a man with whom she’s clearly deeply in love – and whose mysterious absence provides the tension and melancholy underpinning the story. The plot is far from being a typical storyline for an adult film, which only enhances the viewer’s sense that what they’re watching is something truly unique and special.
“‘Gone’ is far more than a porn movie; it’s a bittersweet love story, which provokes thought every bit as much as it entices, taking the viewer on a stirring journey of the sort rarely experienced in an adult film,” explained Rowntree.
CineKink, which runs from March 1-6, was established in 2003 as an effort to recognize and encourage positive depictions of sexuality and kink in film and television.
The annual event features film dramas, comedies, documentaries as well as a variety of shorts and videos from filmmakers around the world. Follow Sssh.com on Twitter here
