Kyoko is an up-and-coming artist filled with self-confidence. She often falls into a slump and takes out her frustration on her assistant Noriko, while continuously overstating her creativity and artistry. One film is shot within a film; another film is shot within the film, like a matrioshka doll.
Antiporno expresses its reversals—truth and falsehood, strength and weakness—through a subtle plot and repeated descriptions of sex, as we witness a woman's reality disrupted in this richly-coloured and fantastic world. Director Sion Sono creates an anarchistic, radical, beautiful and controversial milieu, destroying the limits of self-expression in his quest for freedom.
In association with MUBI
