Porous (movie) accompanies the album of the same name by Canadian experimental synth pop musician, Natural Sympathies (Amber Goodwyn). Porous is an episodic, experimental, feminist, sci-fi musical created by seven director teams, one for each song on the album of the same name: Adrienne Adams, Ian Campbell, Eric Hill, Elian Mikkola, Mike Rollo, Evie Ruddy + Kyath Battie and Ania Ślusarczyk. Funded by the Saskatchewan Arts Board, the seven videos watched in sequence build a narrative about an extraterrestrial named Natural Sympathies whose space ship crashes on Earth and her ensuing journey to fix and fuel her ship, leading her to unexpected discoveries about her new surroundings. The project includes contributions and performances from several artists including Johanna Bundon, Matthew Donnelly, Avianna Hudym, Jenelle Jakobsen, Kendra Kembel, Caitlin Mullan, Risa Payant, Zoë Schneider, Shayna Stock, Jaye Shamel, Meghan Trenholm and many others.
