Ben Hozie talks about his latest film PVT CHAT on Center Stage with Mark Gordon. Hozie states, "PVT CHAT is an attempt to understand this epoch's stimulation addiction and the philosophical ramifications of this stimulation transaction economy. It is also an attempt to bring film eroticism into the 21st century ----> I wanted to film masturbation and fantasy in a way that I've never seen at the cinema: raw, honest, and un-glamorous. Sex in cinema is often just cheap titillation or a quick stop-gap in between plot. I wanted to film sex in a way that reveals something about its ordinary everyday-ness. This couldn't have been achieved without Peter Vack (Jack) and Julia Fox's (Scarlet) cinematic courage. The film was entirely funded by money I received when my mother passed away in 2017 ---> thus in some ways it is also a movie about its own making and by extension is a movie about mourning. It deals with heavy thematics but I wanted the film to also be buoyant ---> it is ultimately a romance and a salvo against cine-nihilism.
