Dis/quiet

Through a series of discussions, a dystopian reality has been outlined: some peculiar news in the offer of prostitution face a society which is not totally ready to accept them.
A couple decides to play a joke on their friends telling them that their relationship is over. This situation quickly turns into an opportunity to make revelations and comments on their private life, gradually painting a whole social context.
Prejudices and reasons are alternately used to describe a new legal, public and cheap offer in the prostitution area, which is in line with the widespread fantasies and needs of the society of impersonal relationships, but still seems to be too advanced in relation to the eternal cultural, religious and reputation superstructures revolving around controversial topics, such as sex.
Directed by Monia De Lauretis and Edward Cutarella (Italy)
