Church Street

Church Street is a story about the power of sex stripped away from morality and judgement.

It is a glimpse into a part of our society that is very rarely represented and a tradition that is as old as our morality.

The key question in the movie and even the root of the movie lies in Annabelle's line:

[FRENCH there are people
who get punched for money, they are
called boxers, it’s even a sport.
better I get fu*cked for money.]

I think sex is far more natural than violence and yet we glorify violence and shun sexual desire. This story is our way of opening
