Marc Martin is a French photographer and filmmaker. His work combats the sterilization of culture modelled on the codes of the dominant heteronormativity. As a resistance to our puritanical and hygienic time, Marc Martin wants to bring positive light on the most extreme fetishist practices by including the diversity of sexual minorities, of bodies and identities.
His much-talked-about exhibition “Public Toilets & Private Affairs” last year at the Schwules Museum in Berlin, explored the gay sub-culture of illegal sex in public toilets. “Tearoom Tracks”, which will be screened at HPFF2019, is an extension of Martin’s previous exhibition, oscillating between pornography and poetry.
HPFF is proud and happy to welcome this amazing artist capable of imagining and researching new horizons of beauty. With his cinema, Marc shows the poetry and beauty that lies in the “dirtiest desires”. There is no compromise, only the truth of real cinema.
