Self Medicated (A Short Film)

Director Introduction:

When bringing up the issues of porn and masturbation there are two kinds of people those who love it and those who don’t want to talk about it. I’ll leave it at that, but before you start the movie I’ll give you this quote from Franz Kafka that could just as easily be applied to movies.

I think we ought to read only the kind of books that wound and stab us. If the book we’re reading doesn’t wake us up with a blow on the head, what are we reading it for? So that it will make us happy, as you write? Good Lord, we would be happy precisely if we had no books, and the kind of books that make us happy are the kind we could write ourselves if we had to. But we need the books that affect us like a disaster, that grieve us deeply, like the death of someone we loved more than ourselves, like being banished into forests far from everyone, like a suicide. A book must be the axe for the frozen sea inside us.

A word of warning this film contains explicit content: viewer discretion advised (NSFW).
