A screening to contemplate the cinematic desire that thrives beyond the codes established by the hegemony of gaze, narrative, and genre codes. How can we excite outside of representation and beyond narrative norms? How do the representation of sex and cinematic experimentation become a driving force for imagination, curiosity, and the creation of fantasies? How can it be porn without the normative codes of a 100 years old industry?

Tangled into archive films and lost pornographic rolls, a director fantasises about a porn actress's faith. How can mediatic images fuel our fetishes, even though we can desire, and at the same time, suffer from those images? How neurosis can also create desire - and repulse? The thrill trapped on a still image, animated by the sequences of a photographic novel. The pose as a potency of movement and emotion, a cut that creates change. Aesthetical fields remind us of the reflexive power of intimacy, pornographic memorabilia and inertia (we all jerk off when bored). The life and party of a gay cowboy, the crazy fantasies of a video game, avatars who we fuck and mythical technological creatures. A dance invites us to take the perspective of the skin, while the desire, the sweat and the texture of the other swings us into a symbiotic territory of desire. Because if we think it through, isn’t that what cinema’s all about? The encounter of bodies through the sensations conveyed by the image.

Films in program

A Flor de Piel

Andor Polgar, Ju Goma, Sick Ducks, Andrew Visse /NL / 2022 / 4min / DCP / NO DIAL

🇧🇪Belgian Premiere
A Flor de Piel is an experimental post-porn short film shot entirely on an analog 35mm rangefinder camera.

The title is a Spanish idiomatic expression that literally translates to “like the flower of skin“. The phrase conveys an overt display of emotion. It is similar to the English expression of “wearing one's heart on one's sleeve“.

Alberto Gonzalez-Morales / CH / 2022 / 8min / DCP / FR ST EN

Thanks to an editing made from content collected online (net footage), the director pays tribute to the male body which he has a love-hate relationship with.


Monstera

Vera Chotzoglou / GR, NL / 2021 / 12min / DCP / EN ST FR

"monstera deliciosa;

an originally tropical plant, used indoors as an aesthetic, decorative object.

In this work, monstera becomes the symbol of our recent internment experience. A state that deviated us from our familiar course, as if the world was blown away in a delirious drift and derailed, in terms of an unexpected pause.

In this narration video, the indoor scenes, eliminate time and connote a state of disarray; inertia bodies, the monstera in an indoor storm, wild animals in captivity, lighting bolts, an orgasm scene, a Luchador getting prepared, an athenian balcony. The strobe lights, reveal the party echo, while the narration, focuses in monstera’ s features and care instructions.

In this field of desire, reality, struggle, memory and expectation, a whole new perception of existing is emerging. The accumulated tension, that the state of hold has brought, leads to the persistent bodies’ preparation for wrestling and crash.

An “expedition chronicle”, about this totally new context.
