Lalo is a sex-influencer: he posts photos of his naked body and homemade porn videos for his thousands of followers on social networks. Lalo directs his own life, but in private, out of character, he seems to live in permanent melancholy. Where does desire itself go when life turns into a sex show? Pornomelancolía takes pornography as a starting point to reflect on the relationship between sexuality and work, on being public and feeling alone, on the characters that we build to show ourselves (or hide) from the world.
