Kali van der Merwe in collaboration with Valentina Leo

W-hole is a journey into the hidden, the secret, the unexposed, the taboo. In this project a very vulnerable, hidden and soft spot of the anatomy – the arsehole, is explored. The focus is on the male anus as a way to investigate male constructs around intimacy, shame, identity, sexuality and the ownership society creates around the body.

W-hole screened at:


Out in Africa - The South African Gay and Lesbian Film Festival in 2008


Festival de Cinema Douarnenez France 2011
