"Jesus, all that darkness...What's that?...Must be just some Space-dusts," says Captain Turner Sorelski as he gazes out his ship's porthole into the vast emptiness of space....Following the journey of six sultry space explorers through a galaxy full of unexpected nemeses, Captain Sorelski and the Women race to win life's ultimate and ever elusive prize: SPACEGOLD! Captain Sorelski commands a feisty yet inept crew who do their ...best to thwart their captain's enterprise. With grace and wit, the crew – along with some unexpected intruders – hilariously bemoan their wanton sexual frustration while Sorelski, ready to sacrifice them all, manoeuvres himself ever closer to his goal.
A movie that begins and ends on the tip of our hero's crotch, Captain Sorelski and the Women in Search of SPACEGOLD is a space adventure gasping for titillation, where greed and treachery fuel an epic journey towards revenge and finally...orgasm!
Finding strong artistic expression in low brow kitsch, SPACEGOLD is a movie that picks up on the B-movie aesthetic established by notable film making team Lee Demarbre and Phil Caracas (Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter and the Harry Knuckles series, Smash Cut). This reflexive piece of video-art explores the boundaries between the screen, the stage, and outer space.
