Alt porn queen Maria Beatty unshackles two female tropes in Spit and Ashes: the “high priestess” and the “midwife” celebrate a variety of erotic, sexual, and violent occult rituals in a hyper symbolic experimental performance arrangement with the expressed goal of reinterpreting historical crimes against the female (body) by the patriarchy, and to prepare for the coming battles. A BDSM fever dream, shot mostly in black and white that includes a pentagram of menstruation blood, masturbation with a burning candle, and a soundtrack chant by the punk legend Lydia Lunch. Throughout it is essential, provocative, sensual, transgressive underground cinema, and a heart piece of this year’s /slash program.
