Erotic film director Noel Alejandro comes back with Under the Rain, an explicit film
that is a subversive, erotic take on art, career and ambition, inspired by both his personal life and the will to question the boundaries of obscenity and pornography. Under the Rain is available now on www.noelalejandro.com
Once again pushing the limits of adult films and aiming to tackle stigmas and spark audacious conversations, Noel created Under the Rain upon a lot of his own personal view of the intertwin of art and ethics. As if asking the audience how far could he go, Noel mixes the surrealism of a silent rain, full-voiced metalinguistics and pure aesthetic erotica to shape a story that is as enigmatical as it’s extremely relatable – and erogenous.
It all starts when four men occupy an old building to execute an artistic project. Mike, the photographer, leads the group while the three models perform in a session that seems to dilate out of the script and into their lives. As the scene evolves, the wounded artist Viktor will take an impassioned trip through his feelings of doubt, fear and ambition, before climaxing into an erotic burst with the group. Did you hear the silent scream? Did the unpronounced rain wet your hands? Are the whispers that you hear, theirs, or your own? These are the type of warming questions that enclose this story of will and perceptions that could easily allude to our owns – and to our individual impressions of erotica.
Under the Rain is Anteo Chara and Markus Reid’s first time working with Noel. They counteract with Enki Babylon and the veteran Valentin Braun.
