Honey bondage, glitter armour and the feeling of being inside a womb. Honey and Glitter is an arousing and sparkling exploration of the body and how to touch the world in a new way. 

When We Are Together We Can Be Everywhere is a film with multiple layers. It is a porn film and it’s a film about making porn. It’s a film about the relations between the persons behind and in front of the camera. It is a film about friendship and sex. It is a loveletter from Marit, the director, to her star, Liz. Liz is cruising through darkrooms, toilets, wastelands and gardens. Berlin is the stage, used as a playground and a projection of their longings. When We Are Together We Can Be Everywhere is a feature porn documentary. The project was born through a cooperation between the director Marit Östberg and starring Liz Rosenfeld to explore porn through a contract of nearness and liaison.
