PinkLabel.tv Debuts 'German Feminist Porn Mockumentary'

SAN FRANCISCO — PinkLabel.tv is touting the online debut of “The Sad Girls of the Mountains,” billed by a studio rep as “a German feminist porn mockumentary.”

A blend of “fantasy and reality,” the film follows a clan of four young women who have “retreated to a hut in the distant mountains to turn their backs on the world,” explained the rep. “They celebrate their sadness as an act of resistance against patriarchy and finance their isolated existence through homemade pornography which they sell online. Excess money is donated to support Kurdish female militias in purchasing weapons. Just when everything seems to be going fine, the arrival of two ‘gonzo’ reporters threatens to upset the fragile balance of this feminist micro-utopia.”

The film won Best Narrative Feature from the PornFilmFestival Berlin.

“We had several more festival and theater screenings booked when COVID-19 came and everything was cancelled,” said co-creator Candy Flip. “So we are glad that at least people can watch the film online now.”

Carrying on the film’s subversive aesthetic, the “Sad Girls,” Flip reported, are “not too sad that all their screenings have been cancelled because public events are often stressful for depressed and socially anxious people like them. During lockdown they sometimes feel a strange relief, as if the corset of societal requirements was loosened for a bit. But then they remember that too many people still have to work under even worse conditions and that the crisis hits those hardest who have been marginalized before — which makes them cry again…”

Flip praised the group’s working relationship with PinkLabel.

“It is one of our favorite hosting platforms,” said Flip. “They make it so easy and comfortable for independent filmmakers like us to offer their work to a broad audience.”
