Blake Pruitt’s “camchat” has been making the film festival rounds over the past year, including Indie Memphis, Fantasia Fest (where it played before Gregg Araki’s “White Bird in a Blizzard”), Rhode Island Int’l Film Festival, NewFilmmakers NY, MIX Copenhagen, and QFest St. Louis, as well as screening at the LGBT Expo in New York this past January. And now you can watch it online.
The 11 minute film is an experimental look at online sexual encounters and relationships through one young man’s interactions. He encounters various men in online chat rooms, his experiences ranging from purely sexual to purely emotional and the confusing space in between. It takes a more stylized, abstract approach to the much-discussed topic of online sexuality.
