PREVIEW

DEAR BABE di Ethan Folk, Ty Wardwell feat. Layton Lachman and Ace (Germania, 2018, 4′)

A home-alone-houseboy is hungry, and not just for breakfast. What will daddy think when he reads about the houseboy’s filthy antics?

 

TRIBUTE di Max Disgrace, Lina Bembe (UK, 2018, 7′)

“Tribute” re-imagines the idea of a lesbian cruising ground in London, in direct response to Annette Kennerley’s “Sex Lies Religion” (1993). At a time when physical spaces for dykes to freely express their sexuality in London is scarce, “Tribute” is a materialisation of this fantasy space in film form, enacted in the same historic cruising ground – Abney Park Cemetery in Stoke Newington – where Kennerley shot her film decades before.

 

A SUNDAY HIKE di Saira Barbaric (US, 2018, 14′)

A casual hike through the woods can have interesting results. Alistair Fyrn stumbles upon a coven lead by Saira Barbaric. They try to get away but Saira leads him right to their altar.

 

LAMENTO DELLA NINFA di Matock (Francia, 2018, 7′)

“Non mi tormenti piu, non mi tormenti piu… ” or the meeting between BDSM and a baroque song. This aria from Monteverdi’s lamentations of the nymph (“lamento della ninfa”) is usually sung by a tenor woman’s voice. Monteverdi’s betrayed nymph is performed here by Martin Poppins, in a domination session with Zoé Gold. What is at stake in this unusual relationship? Is this a BDSM performance metaphor? Is it a way to become a nymph ?

 

MOANA. OCEAN. SEA. di Massimo Alì Mohammad (Italia, 2018, 2′)

Short film dedicated to the memory of the Italian actress Moana Pozzi. Editing of damaged film strips from Cinema Mignon (Ferrara, Italy) scanned frame by frame.

 

PLASTIC & FUR di Maria Blah (Spagna, 2018, 7′)

This work has the rythm and structure of a music video clip where the performance of Garnellen and Blah is syncronized with the music to enhance the feeling and intensity of their sexual encounter.

 

THE CHEMO DARKROOM di Harvey Rabbit (Germania, 2018, 17′)

Sex, pain, the unknown. ‘The Chemo Darkroom’ is ritual film about recovering the sexual self after chemotherapy. A woman embarks on a voyeuristic journey in a gay darkroom, attempting to free herself of the memory of cancer treatment and remember who she was before.
