Spermwhore – Juli Apponen

There are these weird, magical things inside of me, that can potentially create a life, and there is someone who needs them, who can’t get a hold of them very easily. The people who need them, the sperm cells, belong to the the group that I identify with. It feels a bit problematic to go out with, and say that ”I’ve got sperm – you do need it?”

Eftersnack



Eftersnack Spermahoran (only in Swedish)

Vi vill fortfarande prata med varandra om filmen och om det som händer med filmen och med oss när den möter publiken.
Här har vi skapat en sida för eftersnack där vi skriver med och till varandra. Kanske gör vi det bara en stund kanske länge. Det får vi se.
