Amber, by Sensate Films

Amber was the first ever Sensate Film, and may remain our favourite forever (shhh, don’t tell the others).  ‘Amber’ was conceived the day before it was shot by Frank Ly and Gala Vanting, the friends and co-creators who star in the film.  The product isn’t at all what we had expected, but the essence of their love and mutuality is potent and palpable.  ‘Amber’ addresses BDSM play outside of the tropes of standard fetish filmmaking, bringing a warmth to what is often seen by outsiders as a cold, cruel mode of exchange.  It also addresses the equity that exists between top and bottom, dominant and submissive, and holds reverence for the connections and intuitions that are possible in the playspace.

Produced by Sensate Films
Directed by Gala Vanting and Frank Ly
Cinematography by Aven Frey

Sound by Richard Lawrence, James Paul

Synopsis: Amber is a film about the push-pull of erotic edgeplay and the curious brutality of love.  Intimacy is the life force of BDSM, and Gala Vanting and Frank Ly find it in the most unlikely and nuanced of spaces.  Together they cultivate and nurture that force, permitting its serpentine character to emerge, and allow it to be released in forms most beautifully profane.
