故事梗概Synopsis:

《无性恋》跟随拍摄无性恋社群的成长。2000年,大卫·杰伊向他的父母出柜:他是一个无性恋者,并且他安然处之。然而,他并不是唯一一个。研究表明人口总数的百分之一是无性恋者,但是当整个社会都为性着迷,你如何做一个局外人?通过结合私密的采访、直接真实的影像、幽默的动画以及流行符号,大卫和其他四位主人公向这一普遍的问题挑战,而结果可能让你出乎意料。

(A)sexual follows the growth of a community that experiences no sexual attraction. In 2000, David Jay came out to his parents. He was asexual and was fine with it. And he was not alone. Studies show that 1% of the population is asexual. But in a society obsessed with sex, how do you deal with life as an outsider? Combining intimate interviews, verite footage, and animation with fearless humor and pop culture imagery,David and our four other characters grapple with this universal question and the outcomes might surprise you.

导演阐述Director’s Statement:

《无性恋》为人们打开了一扇窗户,以了解这种正在发展,人们却知之甚少的亚文化。我们的电影试图使用幽默和流行文化来让这个严肃的议题变得有趣和容易理解。像影响力很大的《游戏之王》一样,《无性恋》试图开启公众对于这他们本不了解或不重视的议题的讨论。

(A)sexual is a window into a subculture that people know very little about, a subculture that is growing. Our film will use humor and popular culture to make this serious subject interesting and accessible. Like the influential The King of Kong and Scratch, (A)sexual will engage the public in dialogue about a community that they never knew about, or considered seriously, before seeing the film.
