SYNOPSES

THE HOLEY GRAIL – Ethan Folk, Ty Wardell (5’, Germany, 2022)
It’s trial by goblet for this horny cup-bearer on his first day. Madame is thirsty and he’d better not spill a drop!

THE CAROLINA’S REVENGE – El Palomar + Crapulismo Ilustrado (4’, Spain, 2018)
Back in 1931, in Barcelona’s Barrio chino, nowadays known as El Raval, Jean Genet witnessed an extraordinary event: La revuelta de las Carolinas (The Revolt of the Carolinas). The Carolinas were gays, transgenders and transvestites who used to cruise in a public toilet near the navy barracks. As the urinary was closed by the city council, they organized a public demonstration to mourn and protest against its closure.
This video is a tribute to these bold avant garde queers.

🆃🆆 PIKACHU V/S PIÑERA – Errada, Vesania Versátil (8’, Chile, 2021) *ballbusting*
2019 marked a before and after in the relationship between the Chilean people and the political class, they go out into the streets thirsty for rage and justice, demanding dignity. Meanwhile, these two characters have no respect or qualms about filming porn in the middle of chaos. The imaginary created by the most popular symbols of the social outbreak and an imminent political crisis turned in a game of chances unleashes the imagination of our protagonists, Pikachu and Piñera, who in this Ballbusting encounter will personify the most common sexual fantasy in Chile: kicking the president’s balls out.

PROGRESSIVE TOUCH – Micheal Portnoy (13’, Austria, 2020)
Can you fuck to an irregular beat? Progressive Touch depicts three futuristic, absurdist love scenes in which the goal is to “improve” sex by complicating its rhythm and choreography. Sex as dance as comedy. Enacted by three real life couples, the dancers’ every explicit move is synchronized to the propulsive,

BE NOT AFRAID – Halo Rossetti (5’, USA, 2021)
What constitutes a porn? A recording of two beings coming together in pleasure? What constitutes an erotic experience? An eye-blink, a brush of tentacles, or vibrations in the air touching the filaments of the inner ear? In Be Not Afraid , two extraterrestrials from different worlds meet on earth, investigating the meaning of bodily pleasure.

MES CHÉRIS – Ethan Folk, Ty Wardell, Jamal Phoenix (12’, Germany, 2020)
Part documentary, part pornography, Mes Chéris is a transboi’s farewell to his boobs. One month before his mastectomy, Jamal Phoenix takes on the role of Chéri, a character modeled after his experiences as a Fierce Fem sex worker. This raunchy tribute subverts straight porn tropes and mainstream trans* representation in a radical act of self-love
