A story of love & loss from Sssh.com, award-nominated 'Gone' hopes to change the landscape of erotic cinema
BOSTON (February 16, 2016) - Among the more unusual and powerful erotic films ever made, Gone is set to screen at New York's CineKink 2016 film festival on Saturday, March 5. Produced and directed by Sssh.com founder Angie Rowntree, Gone is "perhaps the most significant porn film this reviewer has ever seen," according to critic Rich Moreland.
The screening begins at 5:30 p.m. at Anthology Film Archive in East Village, 32 Second Avenue, New York, 10003. Tickets to the screening are $10, or free for those with all-access festival passes. To purchase tickets, click here, as seating is limited. Attendees must be 18 or over for admission.

Featuring breakout performances by real-life couple Madeline Blue and Gee Richards, Gone relates the story of Rebecca and Todd Adams, a couple deeply in love, but destined for the saddest of partings. The lushly erotic sex scenes are amplified by Rebecca's pain and angst, which drive the film forward with tremendous emotion and pathos.
"I'm extremely excited to have Gone screened at CineKink, a film festival I consider to be a true kindred spirit to Sssh.com, as we both encourage positive and affirming depictions of sexuality in erotica," said Gone director and producer Angie Rowntree. "I'm especially pleased to have the opportunity for the CineKink audience to experience the incredible performances offered by Madeline and Gee, who really poured their heart and souls into Gone, making it possible for me to realize my vision for the film."
In Gone, the viewer experiences the couple's story through Rebecca's eyes, relayed as a series of flashes depicting private moments she spent with Todd, a man with whom she's clearly deeply in love - and whose mysterious absence provides the tension and melancholy underpinning the story.
"Gone is far more than a porn movie; it's a bittersweet love story, which provokes thought every bit as much as it entices, taking the viewer on a stirring journey of the sort rarely experienced in an adult film," claimed Rowntree.
CineKink, which runs from March 1-6, was established in 2003 as an effort to recognize and encourage positive depictions of sexuality and kink in film and television. The annual event features film dramas, comedies, documentaries as well as a variety of shorts and videos from filmmakers around the world.
