Based on Some Never Awaken a confession by
Experience a sexual awakening through dance, movement, and passionate sex."You live like this, sheltered, in a delicate world, and you believe you are living. Monotony, boredom, death. Millions live like this (or die like this) without knowing it. And then some shock treatment takes place, a person, a book, a song, and it awakens them and saves them from death. Some never awaken." Julia Roca and Sylvan star in this beautifully expressive exploration of a sexual awakening through dance, movement and deeply passionate intimacy.
I was utterly, completely inspired by this confession, and I found my own quote from Anaïs that speaks very deeply to me: "I love the abstract, delicate, profound, vague, voluptuously wordless sensation of living ecstatically." Julia and Sylvan have the most incredible chemistry as performers who are also friends - both so gorgeous, so full of life and vitality. I hope this film uplifts and awakens you, in the same way it did for me when I made it.
