Sunday 26th of October: The successful 3rd Porn Filmfestival Berlin draws the closing curtains -
The Award Winners

After 5 days full of exciting, stimulating, erotic, surprising and innovative films from all over the world, the moment finally arrived, on the 26th of October 2008, that the festival would come to its end. A total of 2.800 viewers came to see the 105 feature and short films of the festival programme in the movie theatres Moviemento, Eiszeit and Xenon in Berlin. A total of 50 guests (directors, producers, actors) came to the screenings to introduce their films and answer questions about them, while more than 100 journalists and festival organizers traveled from all over the world to Berlin. The night bar, the place to go every night after the film programme was over and enjoy a mixture of musical and artistic performances, was happy to welcome another 2.000 guests.

The closing ceremony, combined with the award ceremony of the festival, took place on Sunday evening at the Moviemento cinema. The jury, consisting of the filmmakers Manon des Gryeux (Paris), Charles Lum (New York) and Susanne Sachsse (Berlin), gave away the award for the Short Film Competition, while Jürgen Brüning, the festival founder and curator himself, gave away the maleflixxx.tv Award to the best gay film of the festival.

The Winners of the 3rd Berlin Porn Film Festival 2008:
International Short Film Competition
Passion For Football (Passión por el Futbol)
Spain, 2006, 13 minutes, Rut Suso & Maria Pavón

Statement of the International Short Film Competition Jury:
Charles Lum, New York, Director
Manon des Gryeux, Paris, Director and Photographer
Susanne Sachsse, Berlin, Actress

“For its hot, taboo breaking GIRLS T-ROOM SEX, masterful sound design and music use, for natural but compelling performances that lead to a surprized and humorous ending which doesn’t ridicule football or its fans, the jury chooses Passion For Football as its choice for winner of the 2008 short film competition.”

maleflixxx.tv Award:
Claudette
Switzerland, 2007, 63 minutes, Sylvie Cachin
The presence of the main protagonist of the film Claudette gave the festival a very rich flare, while the film itself, directed by Sylvie Cachin, illustrated the portrait of a tireless fighter for the sexual self-identity rights of every human being, beyond any gender categories and sexual orientation.

We would like to thank…
The festival team would like to thank all the guests and viewers, who made sure that the Berlin Porn Film Festival could be alive for the third year in a row in a friendly and inspiring as well as a creative and communicative atmosphere. Moreover, we would like to thank all of our sponsors, collaborators and media people, as well as the volunteers whose help was of great importance. Without their help, the festival could have not taken place.

Jugend und Pornographie / Young people and pornography
25.10., 18:00, Moviemento 1, discussion in German language

Das Medienprojekt Wuppertal bietet Kindern und Jugendlichen die Möglichkeit, eigene Filme und Videos zu unterschiedlichen Themen zu machen. So entstanden auch immer wieder Arbeiten, die sich auf unterschiedliche Weise mit dem Thema Sexualität auseinandersetzen. In diesem Jahr produzierte das Medienprojekt Wuppertal eine längere Dokumentation zum Thema Jugendliche und Pornographie, die wir gerne im Rahmen des Festivals vorstellen und diskutieren wollen.

Geiler Scheiß – Ein Film über Jugendliche und Pornographie H NX D
Germany, 2008, 45 minutes, Medienprojekt Wuppertal, German original version
Geiler Scheiß - Ein Film über Jugendliche und PornographieIn dem Dokumentarfilm reflektieren Jugendliche offen ihren unterschiedlichen Umgang mit Pornographie im Internet, auf DVDs, in Zeitschriften etc. Junge Pornographiekonsumenten, Experten und Kritiker kommen zu Wort. Im Mittelpunkt steht das Verhältnis zwischen Pornographie, Sexualität und Moralvorstellungen. Jugendliche mit sehr verschiedenem Umgang mit und Meinungen zu Pornographie wurden auf der Straße und in längeren Einzelinterviews befragt. Drei Jungen und drei Mädchen wurden geschlechtsgetrennt beim gemeinsamen Pornokonsum (DVDs, Magazine, Internet) dokumentiert und dieser anschließend reflektiert.

Im Zentrum stehen die Fragen, was Pornographie für Jugendliche bedeutet, das heißt, warum sie wie viel und was gucken bzw. nicht gucken und wie Pornographie auf sie wirkt. Welche Gefahren sehen sie für sich und andere und welche Bedeutung haben Altersbeschränkungen und Verbote für sie, in welchem Zusammenhang steht Pornographie zu ihrer eigenen Sexualität und wie sind die geschlechtsspezifischen Unterschiede. Pornographie wird (auch) moralisch, politisch und in Bezug auf das transportierte Menschen- und Frauenbild erörtert. Außerdem beschreibt und bewertet ein Sexualpädagoge den Pornokonsum bei Jugendlichen. Diese verwechselten in der Regel eben nicht Fiktion und Realität und seien “nicht doofer, verführbarer oder desorientierbarer als Erwachsene.”
Anschließend Diskussion mit den beteiligten Jugendlichen des Medienprojektes Wuppertal, www.medienprojekt-wuppertal.de
A film about young people and pornography, followed by a discussion with the young people who were involved in making the film. (discussion in German).

Germany, 2008, 28 minutes, Benjamin von Bebber & Bastian Zimmermann, German original version
An der Granze des Fruchtlandes
Es ist ganz und gar unwahrscheinlich, dass zwei Menschen sich nahe kommen. Welches Medium macht Nähe oder Verschmelzung möglich? Der Körper selbst? Was wird durch Video möglich? Ist tatsächliche Nähe vielleicht erst im virtuellen Raum zu erreichen?

Die Kamera folgt der Protagonistin auf der Suche nach Antworten, ihrem Weg durch die eigenen Ängste und eine Gesellschaft, die Distanz, Resignation und Langeweile zu ihren Prinzipien erklärt hat. Der Wunsch nach absoluter Nähe, dessen Erfüllung der Protagonistin in der Realität verwehrt bleibt, scheint schließlich im Geschlechtsakt im virtuellen Raum sich einzulösen.

Was aber passiert, wenn die eigene Grenze sich auflöst? Kann das Ich in der Verschmelzung mit dem Anderen vor dem Anderen bestehen?

The camera follows the female protagonist on her quest for absolute closeness which she seems to find only in the sexual act in a virtual space. But what happens, when our own boundaries dissolve?

The Apple
Eva wacht im Paradies auf, findet einen Apfel… und begeht eine köstliche Sünde.

Eve wakes up in Paradise, finds an apple… and commits a delicious sin.

In this short porn video, Émilie Jouvet has managed to recreate the atmosphere of pin-up movies, but her Bettie Page is not only a blonde, she also re-invents mythology. On a gorgeous soundtrack, mixing sexy glimpses in black & white and flashy reds with fast editing and slow motions, Émilie has managed to create a style that mixes the genres of porn, burlesque and fetish.

Artcore
Was ist Porno und was ist Kunst? In “Artcore” zeigt Petra Joy, dass Kunst und Porno keine Gegensätze sein müssen, sondern sich zu einer inspirierenden Mischung vereinigen können. Die Zuschauer sind eingeladen, sich auf eine Reise ins Land der erotischen Fantasien zu begeben: Sich verkleiden oder ganz nackt sein, streicheln oder schlagen, sinnlichen Sex zu zweit oder zu mehreren zu haben – was ist Deine Fantasie? “Artcore” möchte inspirieren, die eigenen erotischen Fantasien zu entdecken und irgendwann in orgasmische Realität zu verwandeln.

What is porn? What is art? In “Artcore” Petra Joy shows that both genres don’t have to be separate but can be joined to create an exciting synergy. The body becomes a canvas for erotic messages. The audience is titillated to go onto a journey into the realms of fantasies: Dress up or undress, caress or spank, a sensual twosome or a full on moresome – What is your fantasy? “Artcore” wants to inspire you to unveil your own erotic fantasies and hopefully one day make them an orgasmic reality.

www.beautifulagony.com is a web-based project which reflects the eroticism of the human face at the moment of orgasm. Its gallery of D.I.Y. films is constantly growing and allows everyday people to capture their sexualities on tape however they see fit – as long as it’s from the shoulders up. “Beautiful Agony” documents three Agonees and their trip up the hill to experiment with sensuality both within and outside of the frame.

The Best Is Yet To CumBasierend auf Photographien bei Veranstaltungen des queeren Phag Off Projektes in Rom nimmt uns die Regisseurin mit, um die traditionellen Grenzen zwischen Homo- und Heterosexualität zu dekonstruieren.

“The Best Is Yet To Cum” is the result of two years of photographic incursions into “Phag Off”, a project started in Rome on 2003 which promotes queer culture through parties, concerts, art and events. The video allows the viewer to become more than an observer: Imagine someone taking your hand and pushing you into a smoky freaky room to deconstruct the traditional division between homo and heterosexual, woman and man, observer and performer. Take part in a world that desires to express itself in unlimited ways of being…

USA / Peru / Argentina, 2008, 12 minutes, Amautalab, Martin Jalfen & Javier Lourenço, Swedish original version with English subtitles

The Blindness Of The WoodsEin animiertes Märchen im Stile der skandinavischen Pornos der Siebziger: die blinde Ulrika lebt alleine im Wald, bis sie den Holzfäller Hans und den Bär Björn trifft.

“The Blindness of the Woods” develops a narrative that combines the naive simplicity of fairy tales with the Nordic erotic movies from the 70′s. These two genders are supposed never to meet, bringing about mixed feelings in the audience who are uncertain about feeling moved as they watch the cute woollen characters or getting sexually aroused as they see them having sex. Ulrika, a blind woman who lives isolated in a cabin in the cold woods of Sweden, suffers from the freezing winter loneliness. One day, Hans, a curt lumberjack, comes across her offering not only his logs to warm up but also his love. A love and sex story unfolds between the blind woman and the lumberjack which is being witnessed by the voyeuristic character Bear Bjorn. Her love fulfilment is overshadowed by Hans’ betrayal who takes advantage of her condition, stealing her belongings. This scenario pushes Bear Bjorn to act on Ulrika’s behalf doing justice to her in his own hands as he gets rid of the lumberjack, eventually wrapping up the love circle.

Hassen and Jonás meet in a small place in the outskirts of Mexico City. Away from it all, they have found a spot where they can seduce one another and merge into one; where sex becomes desire, and desire becomes love. Only death will separate them. El Bramadero could be a particular place, or no place in particular, but you’ll always leave as naked and alone as you came in.

F/FEin simultaner Besuch auf zwei typisch amerikanischen Herbstfesten: der Fryeburg Fair in Neuengland und der Folsom Street Fair in San Francisco.

“F/F” is a simultaneous musical journey through two uniquely American Autumn Festivals, the Fryeburg Fair in New England and San Francisco’s Folsom Street Fair. The topographically, culturally and musically diverse celebrations are brought together in one frame as both counterpoint and mirror image, exposing the camera and viewer as observant voyeurs. The dual structure proposes a cultural comparison. Music, cameras and festivalgoers dance across the vast political and geographical landscape of America.

The Fall Of Communism As Seen In Gay Pornography
25.10., 20:15, Eiszeit 1, with “Tearoom”
USA, 1998, 19 minutes, William E. Jones, English original version

The Fall Of Communism As Seen In Gay PornographyEin Found-Footage-Werk, das mit schwulen, pornografischen Videos aus Osteuropa arbeitet, die seit dem Ende des Kommunismus gedreht wurden. Die Ausbeutung der jungen Männer und die neue Welt, in der Geld, Macht und Sex zusammengehören, werden deutlich.
Every image in “The Fall Of Communism As Seen In Gay Pornography” comes from gay erotic videos produced in Eastern Europe since the introduction of capitalism. The video provides a glimpse of young men responding to the pressures of an unfamiliar world, one in which money, power and sex are now connected. Handsome, hungry and defiant, these youths are caught up in a brutal system that sees them as nothing more than cheap labour. This video is not about “naughty” transgression or titillation, but about the real pornography of human exploitation.

Hulahoop SoundingsEin erotisches Remake des Abschlussfilms von Joel Coen “Soundings” als Dreiergeschichte mit Telefonsex und einem Hulahoop-Reifen.

Lana is a phone sex operator. She swings on a hulahoop when taking calls, to make the gasping noises her clients love. Nico doesn’t know what Lana does, all he knows is he is madly in love with her. Heidy is Nico’s jealous lover. She is certain Lana has put a spell on him.

Director’s Statement: Reading the synopsis of “Soundings” inspires me. It’s Joel Coen’s NYU’s thesis short film and I have not seen this short before. I have already seen 9 of the Coen Brothers’ films, and I feel that in this short film called “Soundings”, you could read their unique oeuvre. I decide to rewrite and remake this short film, “a woman engaged in sex with her deaf boyfriend while verbally fantasizing about having sex with her boyfriend’s best friend, who is listening in the next room.”

In Black Velvet“In Black Velvet” definiert Porno als Kunst. Auf den bedingungslos pornographischen Charakter des Films zielend, finden sich hier weder Geschichte oder Dialog noch Schauplatz oder Philosophie. Die explizite sexuelle Darbietung wird reduziert auf zwei männliche Körper in samten-schwarzer Leere, die sich dem sexuellen Akt mit sich steigernder Dynamik hingeben. Sie sind dem vollen Licht ausgesetzt und umgeben von 5 Kameras, die sie von allen Seiten einfangen. Der vorliegende Film ist überraschenderweise ästhetisch und dennoch extrem erregend zugleich.

“In Black Velvet” defines Porn as Art. Aiming to create a video of absolute pornographic character, there is no story, dialogue, location or philosophy. The explicit sexual performance of the actors is minimised to two male bodies having sex directly with growing dynamism in a black velvety emptiness. They are surrounded by 5 cameras which zoom in from all angles in bright light. As a surprise the result is extremely exciting and aesthetic.

RAN-EasterDer einzige fertiggestellte Film des Medizinstudenten und Underground-Filmers Kawaragi. Faszinierende Bilder, die seinen eigenen Mutterkomplex mit Punk und New Wave Musik der 80er Jahre und Anspielungen auf die japanische Tanz- und Theatertradition illustrieren.
In the late 70′s, under the influence of the punk and post punk movement, Japanese young filmmakers started to make their own films on Super 8, among them ISHII Sogo, YAMAMOTO Masashi and TSUKAMOTO Shinya. They made new generation films in an original DIY style. Inspired by this new independent film movement, the medical student KAWARAGI Hironao made his first film “RAN-Easter”. It combined punk and new wave music with Japanese primitive images and Japanese art performance (Japanese Butoh dance and Noh theatre), and he depicted his trauma as an immoral fantasy, based on his own mother complex. In the film, a mother-fucker fucked his mother and killed her, then he cut off her genitals and masturbated with them. He called the film a “visual scandal” but when famous director OSHIMA Nagisa saw it as a judge at an independent film competition, he called it an “inexcusable film!”. After this film, Kawaragi started to make the blockbuster Super 8 cyberpunk / SF movie “Crazy Dolls”, but the film fell by the wayside. Kawaragi quit film making after the defeat and became a doctor. He died in 2000 from leukaemia. “RAN-Easter” is the only completed film that he left.

Ein pornographischer Tanzfilm mit dem weltberühmten transsexuellen Pornostar Buck Angel. Gefilmt während der schwulen New Yorker Black Party, mit über 5,000 Ledermännern in Aktion – deutscher Expressionismus trifft Disney zu Technoklängen.

Starring Buck Angel, the world famous female-to-male transsexual porn star, and featuring a cast of performance artists, nightclub personalities, exhibitionists, fetishists and over 5,000 leather clad dancers, the movie captures – for the first time on film – the transformative powers of all male gay dance rituals as exemplified by New York City’s 28 year old Black Party. Stylistically, it combines elements of Grimm’s fairy tales as interpreted by Disney, German Expressionist silent films, the modern documentary, and “arty” porn filtered through heavy use of Jungian allegorical archetypes. The film is scored to a continuous dance mix and intended to take audiences on a phantasmagorical trip. It’s a new step in a long tradition of underground queer cinema as a leader in the evolution of the cinematic art form.

Sex By NationalityEine kritische Auseinandersetzung des Regisseurs mit seiner Heimat Singapur, das nach außen als liberal und tolerant auch gegen Homosexuelle gelten will und das im Kern doch repressiv, zensurorientiert und obrigkeitsgeleitet ist.

“Sex By Nationality”, by the Singaporean Ho, is “dedicated to repression in Singapore”, a country that (he believes) wants to have its cake and eat it too by appearing fairly liberal and open to the world. In keeping with that win-win national character, the film’s homage is to ‘compensate’ for the repression with “an unexpurgated tale of homosexual desire”. If anything, it is to show what Singapore would want the world to know – that she has gay-tolerance neatly circumscribed in her progress agenda. However, notwithstanding the contorted rationale there, X’ Ho isn’t about to test that open-ness by submitting his homage for censorship approval back home.

Teat Beat Of SexSechs sehr persönliche, animierte Sexualkundestunden, erzählt aus der Sicht einer Frau mit viel Erfahrung.

“Teat Beat Of Sex” is a series of sex lessons given by a knowing lady.

Director’s Statement: There is an assumption that women are less interested in sex than men. How is that possible? In one sexual encounter we, women, are able to have several orgasms while a man can have only one or, if he pushes it, two ejaculations. Let’s talk about it!

There is another mistaken assumption out there that women are too shy to talk about sex, or they have nothing exciting to say about the topic. Even “Sex and the City” was written by men. So wrong! Women are as sex obsessed and opinionated as men, so let’s hear what we have to spill!

And, then of course, there is this neat little shelve labeled “Opinions of Minorities” that a lot of women’s views end up on. How could we be minority if men die at a faster rate than women and we actually are a majority of the humanhood!
In any case, I would like to assure you, am a passionate opinionated heterosexual female and I love men just like I love my clitoris and I want to talk about it all – men, dicks, clitoris, pussy juice, masturbation and other no less fascinating things.

I would like to be heard and respected – because if men would listen carefully what women have to say about sex, maybe we end up living without a war, just like bonobos…

The Nasty Love Of Papi' And WilEin einfühlsames und erotisches Portrait des transidentischen Paares Papi’ und Wil, die das Publikum in ihre offene, polyamouröse Beziehung einladen. BDSM, Rollenspiele und Sex zu Dritt sind nur einige der Themen des Films.

“Trans Entities: The Nasty Love of Papi’ and Wil” is a unique, sexy, thought provoking and above all touching portrait of a real transgender couple, Papi’ and Wil, who open themselves up to the camera like you have never seen before. They are a perverted, loving, polyamorous couple who identify as Trans Entities, a word they have coined to describe their gender identity.

Armed with my video camera I set out to capture this couple in a multifaceted way, from revealingly personal interviews to fun nights out on the town. The three sex scenes in the movie, including one with a third partner, were shot completely undirected, allowing the viewer an engagingly raw look into their uninhibited exploration of role-playing, BDSM and lots of hot sex.

I call this film a “docu-porn” since this movie captures a real couple discussing their sex, sexuality and gender identity while also having hot, sensual sex as the camera rolls. One of the key themes touched upon in this film is polyamory. Papi’ and Wil discuss the pleasures and perils of having a polyamorous relationship and show us by engaging in a scene with a third partner, Chris, who they both date in real life. This is one of the first transgender erotic movies to discuss and demonstrate role play as a rich and meaningful part of a couple’s sex life. Papi’ and Wil show us everything from the negotiation of a role play scene, to the scene itself and the after care when the scene is over.

In Uruguay, on the outskirts of Montevideo and facing the sea, there is a place that some call the Luxuria parking lot. It’s an ordinary parking lot during the day, but at night plenty of cars come to park there. They are mostly young couples, in any case lovers, who come with their cars to make love in the parking lot and then leave. Experimental super 8 images and some scenes of historical Montevideo lend support to Patrick Volve’s comments on the sexual habits of certain citizens of Uruguay…

The documentary focuses on the lives of three Israeli porn actresses and follows them as they go through the uncensored stages of an adult film production. Pornography bears a strong connection to exploitation. Is it really so that we live in a world which allows one person to take advantage of other people’s personal problems, who feel they have no other choice but to sell their body for money? Or is it possible for women to work in the porn industry without being exploited?

Jugendliche mit sehr verschiedenem Umgang mit und Meinungen zu Pornographie wurden auf der Straße und in längeren Einzelinterviews befragt. Drei Jungen und drei Mädchen wurden geschlechtsgetrennt beim gemeinsamen Pornokonsum (DVDs, Magazine, Internet) dokumentiert und dieser anschließend reflektiert.

Im Zentrum stehen die Fragen, was Pornographie für Jugendliche bedeutet, das heißt, warum sie wie viel und was gucken bzw. nicht gucken und wie Pornographie auf sie wirkt. Welche Gefahren sehen sie für sich und andere und welche Bedeutung haben Altersbeschränkungen und Verbote für sie, in welchem Zusammenhang steht Pornographie zu ihrer eigenen Sexualität und wie sind die geschlechtsspezifischen Unterschiede. Pornographie wird (auch) moralisch, politisch und in Bezug auf das transportierte Menschen- und Frauenbild erörtert. Außerdem beschreibt und bewertet ein Sexualpädagoge den Pornokonsum bei Jugendlichen. Diese verwechselten in der Regel eben nicht Fiktion und Realität und seien “nicht doofer, verführbarer oder desorientierbarer als Erwachsene.”

Herzfeuer
We took a trip through German bedrooms. We talked to single people and couples, young and old people all over the country about love, sex and erotic dreams, obsessions and hidden desires. No peep show, no lurid prying under the covers, no educational doctor games, but inquisitive provocative, solid and very open conversations. This is not merely another contribution to the mass of sex-guides, no DIY for eroticists, but an unsettling film from the sensual world. All contributors have one thing in common: an amazing directness and the courage of self recognition.

La nudité toute nue
On the front pages, during protest actions, in the cinema and at fitness centres, we increasingly face all sorts of human nakedness. Serious yet witty, this documentary uncovers the bare facts of the contemporary nude, from its performative and transgressive manifestations (Internet, strip tease, pornography, streaking) to its internalized almost spiritual expression (therapeutic forms such as naturism, yoga, naked trekking). The interviewees agreed to respond to the director’s questions, revealing the naked truth about the matter and making “La nudité toute nue” the first nudocumentary in cinema history.

Larry Flynt - The Right To Be Left Alone
Both hero and villain, both purveyor of pornography and tireless civil rights advocate, the always controversial publisher of Hustler magazine Larry Flynt is the subject of Joan Brooker-Marks’ tell-all documentary “Larry Flynt: The Right To Be Left Alone”. In a timely response to a current political situation where the fundamental civil rights of Americans are being challenged, the film offers an eye-opening and authoritative overview of Flynt’s long-standing struggles to expand the parameters of free speech and expose the hypocrisy of this country’s elected leaders. The documentary focuses on the self-confessed smut peddler’s usually contentious entanglements with politics – from his precedent-setting Supreme Court case against evangelist and adulterer Jerry Falwell, to his prison sentence for refusing to name his source for the tapes documenting FBI entrapment. “Larry Flynt: The Right To Be Left Alone” also profiles Flynt’s confrontation of the current administration of George W. Bush on the issues of civil liberties and government transparency as Flynt sued Donald Rumsfeld and the Pentagon for press access to the battlefield in Iraq.

Nina
Nina and Sophie are two very different young women who are caught in the same body and mind. Nina is the porn star, while Sophie is the nice girl from next door. For two years, Nina took over Sophie’s everyday life. Nina took one job after another to finally fulfil her dream of becoming a porn star. She was hoping that the job would allow her to climb the social ladder, pay off her debts and gain recognition and love. But being an actress is a very tough job. Contrary to what people imagine, shooting a porn film is not only a pleasure, it can actually be quite painful for body and mind. One day, Sophie decided to have the upper hand, kick out Nina and stop shooting.
I met Nina at this turning point of our respective lives. Through my looking, both watchful and dumbstruck, I observed this woman managing a real metamorphosis. Then Sophie started writing an autobiography with the title “I Do Assume”: it was her opportunity to face Nina and to clarify the situation with her, but also to draw the attention of her peers. Step by step, our relationship became a love story. A unique and striking rebirth happened before my eyes. Also, with Sophie’s agreement and complicity, I shot her everyday life, our everyday life, to permit her to tell her story freely. For six months, I followed and questioned her to uncover the reasons that pushed her into this singular job. Quickly, I understood that nobody enters the porn industry by chance, neither for pleasure. All along our interviews and walks, the film found its line by itself: Sophie was writing to understand herself better, and I was filming to comprehend her better.
From introspection to autobiography, from assumed exhibitionism to daily life intimacy, the film stands for an impressionist narration built like an identity in re-composition. A story where drollness hides toughness, and obviousness buries contradiction. An unconcealed disorder where emotions jostle together until the portrait ends, before regaining a form of harmony.

Germany, 2008, 81 minutes, Katharina Klewinghaus, English original version with German subtitles

Science Of Horror - If The Chainsaw Was A Penis
Horror films are pornographic and eroticise the abject. Yet, they relieve, they are humorous and challenge cultural taboos. “Science Of Horror” is the first documentary to analyze horror film from the perspective of feminist film critique. Carol Clover discovers the “final girl” in “Texas Chainsaw Massacre”, an androgynous but clearly feminine hero. Therewith, Clover delivers an essential formula of the genre and the foundation for further assumptions. Women are horror’s favourite victims but also its heroes. The phallus, indicator of social power, becomes a flexible object in horror: The chainsaw in the “final girl’s” hands allows a different look on the cultural norms of Western societies – the genre undermines heterosexual attribution. It is with that theory in mind, that Judith Halberstam develops a queer reading of the genre and illustrates along the “Chucky” series how explicitly sexuality runs through horror and which sexual vicissitudes the genre offers. Those theoretic assumptions are proven with citations from well-known horror films and confronted with statements of renowned filmmakers. Thus, the documentary is the first to lead a discourse between film theory and film practice. Wes Craven, John Carpenter and Tom Savini comment on their films and their fans. Bruce Campbell explains why he depicts a male victim in the “Evil Dead” movies. Joe Hill criticizes “torture porn” because of its shallowness, whereas Neil Marshall elucidates why “The Descent” consciously plays with audience’s expectations. The documentary concludes that there is more to the genre than the sum of its effects. Horror is utterly unique.

Secret Museums NX D

Secret Museums
A documentary looking at the phenomena of hidden erotic art. These pieces are kept in bank safes, hidden behind strong walls and secret doors of the Vatican, lying in special depots of the Louvre-Museum, in special rooms of universities and the British Library or – in private houses. They are erotic, they are art and they have been created by the most known artists and yet only few experts know about these treasures.
In this documentary we are tracking down lost and forgotten treasures of fascinating art. We examine the question how art can be so powerful that it needs to be destroyed, hidden and ignored in our world where all kinds of erotica can be found at any newspaper stand, on TV, DVD and the Internet? It is a subject that few of us know much about, but which has implications for all.

Wrangler: Anatomy Of An Icon H S NX D SW
26.10., 16:30, Eiszeit 2
USA, 2008, 90 minutes, Jeffrey Schwartz, English original version

Anatomy Of An Icon
There have been dozens of gay porn stars, but only one Jack Wrangler. Bursting onto the scene in the early ’70s, he wasn’t the typical obscure object of desire but a full-bodied, self-confident stud. Buff, masculine and clearly comfortable in his own skin, Wrangler was more than just a hot guy to fantasize about – he was a role model. With a screen persona that blended virility with a sly eye for fun, Wrangler was the first out actor to show how a gay man could be strong, secure and lustful. In this entertaining oral history of the ground-breaking 70′s, the self-aware (and self-deprecating) Wrangler describes his journey from skinny Beverly Hills brat (his hard-to-please father was a production exec on “Bonanza”) to aspiring actor to a brand name with a product line. Fans from Chi Chi LaRue to Marc Shaiman to Bruce Vilanch drop by to recall the heady days of gay movie houses and to sing Jack’s praises. Rounding out the package are a wealth of clips of Wrangler strutting his stuff in vintage films. Proving that there are second – and third – acts in American life, Wrangler successfully made the jump to straight porn and, in recent years, established himself as a serious director of serious theatre. The most surprising turn in Wrangler’s iconoclastic life, however, was meeting and wooing songbird Margaret Whiting. Creative and vital, and as unconcerned as ever with the limits others would place on him, Jack Wrangler is still a role model.

Bacchanale
In the year 1970 the brothers John and Lem Amero presented one of the most extraordinary sex films of the 70′s. In a surreal conglomerate of explicit pornography and psychedelic dream sequences, they penetrated deep into the core of the zeitgeist and with the help of many multicolored filters they created a cinematic trip beyond all comparisons.
To pay homage to this underground cult film, 57 audio artists set themselves at the behest of the New York Art Collective Monkey Town to re-interpret it and sew a new sonic garment on its entire body.
The result is amazing: Not only does it boost the intoxicating character of “Bacchanale” to an immense degree, but also through the various themes of the musical background, there emerges a collection of 57 short, totally different miniatures, that in the end make a whole. Bacchanale 2006 – it is more than a film, it is an experience!

Feeling It!
Award winning director Petra Joy continues her sensual revolution of the adult movie genre by creating art-core rather than hard-core erotica. Her third erotic film “Feeling it” celebrates intimacy, sensuality and ecstasy. The focus is on female pleasure. The film is based on Petra’s motto “Feeling it, not faking it!” and features players who enjoy a genuine sensual chemistry rather than putting on an act for the cameras. The vignettes are based on female fantasies that women from all over the world shared with Petra. This movie is a visual erotic feast that aims to inspire, excite and liberate beyond the clichés of mainstream porn that leave most women cold. Petra is proud to promote safe sex and feature a multinational cast. We hope you enjoy watching the lovers experiencing breathtaking orgasms as much as we loved filming them. May this film bring pleasure to you!

Fisting Underground Berlin, Part 1
While the sex technique of fisting horrifies many, women (straight and lesbian) discover the pleasure of vaginal fisting more and more. Anal fisting, mostly practiced among gay men, is highly underrated as a solely rough and brutal play. In “Fisting Underground, Part 1″ we’re able to see the most sensitive and devoted side of gay men. Surprisingly cocks don’t play such a big role in this, so we see the actors in an almost female way of engaging in the highest intimacy – interesting not only for gay men but for all women who’ve been curious about fisting lately.

George Bataille's Story of the Eye
“Arranging narrative is a bourgeois mania” – director McElhinney makes it clear in his very loose adaptation of George Batailles’ famous/infamous “Story of the Eye” that the “story” here is not his primary concern. In loosely linked, enigmatic episodes, he explores the world of the scandalous author. With the prologue of documented scenes of a child birth, he gives the viewers some biographical details about Bataille through a voice over, just to be able to later leave them on their own in a ride through themes, patterns and other elements of Bataille’s work, that always dealt with sexuality, power, intoxication, delimitation and transgression. Only few isolated excerpts help with the classification of what is presented, which wildly oscillates between pornography and experimental art. McElhinney denies to fulfill the pragmatic function of pornography by not addressing a clearly defined target audience: The three erotic episodes of the “Story of the Eye” show a gay, a lesbian and a heterosexual encounter, with various fetishes are being addressed. A film against the narrow-minded mentality, a film for an audience in the mood for an adventure – a film, that even Bataille would have liked!

In Search Of The Wild Kingdom
“In Search Of The Wild Kingdom” is a mock-documentary that playfully explores the limits of sexual orientation. “Award-winning documentary maker” Georgia Mann comes to San Francisco to produce her new film, “Lesbians of San Francisco” … and proceeds to violate every single rule of documentary film making, crew management, and perhaps even the law. At the end, she’s not a bit closer to understanding what lesbianism really is (although her crew makes some discoveries of their own). And, of course, we’re treated to some very hot sex along the way.
Shot with intimacy, honesty, and a sense of humor “In Search Of The Wild Kingdom” continues Shine Louise Houston’s explorations of the fluidity of gender and sexuality, while serving as a strong tonic for those tired of cookie-cutter porn.

Ole Ege - The Naughty Boy (Ole Ege den grimme dreng)
When Denmark legalised pornography in 1969, Danish filmmaker Ole Ege led the way, pushing the boundaries of acceptability to the limit. This documentary profiles Ege’s life and work, and examines how a previously prudish society reacted to the sudden advent of total freedom.

Ole Ege passionately professes eroticism – the girls, their forms and their nature. He sharply distinguishes between eroticism and pornography, but due to increasing competition, Ole Ege started Color Climax porno films, where he not only filmed girls, but now also let men appear. As this developed in the direction of hard core pornography, Ole Ege stopped as this was not his field.

SMS Sugar Man
“I cannot remember when I last watched a film with my eyes SO WIDE OPEN. I looked in the mirror afterwards and my eyes were bloodshot: I had hardly blinked. Philosophically, this film has eclipsed the existentialist novelist Kafka, when, lost in the labyrinth, he searched for meaning through the morass of bureaucracy getting nowhere. Here Kaganof (author, director, painter, poet) searches for meaning by plumbing the depths of the male psyche, and gets everywhere. Modern Jungian analysts would have a field day in recognising the various aspects of the psyche: the multiple levels of the animus and anima, revealed with such dramatic comprehension. Put bluntly, “SMS Sugar Man” is a cinematic masterpiece of its time, its place: which happens to be Johannesburg, South Africa.” (Helge Janssen)

Inspired by true events, “Solos” was banned in its home country for sexual explicitness and tells its story from a distance, giving its characters, who remain nameless, an iconic feel.

What makes “Solos” most radical to 21st century audiences is precisely what makes it cinematic to the core: There is no dialogue. But it would be incorrect to call the film silent, as it makes full use of ambient noise, creating an aural atmosphere that equals the striking digital cinematography. Most of the film is shot in static long-shot, making the silence of the characters palpable and their emotions raw. Though it focuses largely on the prolonged breakup of the student and teacher, the film gives much of its weight to the boy’s mother, who acutely feels the loss of her son. Scenes of the teacher and student having sex, arguing and eating are juxtaposed with scenes of the mother, alone and in her omnipresent nightgown, retreating deeper into her world of isolation and melancholy.

Co-directors Kan Lume and Zihan Loo (who wrote the screenplay and also plays the student) demonstrate a flair for poetic imagery, deadpan humor and, most importantly, profound sympathy for their characters.

USA, 1962/2007, 56 minutes, William E. Jones, silent

Tearoom
“Tearoom” consists of footage shot by the police in the course of a crackdown on public sex in the American Midwest. In the summer of 1962, the Mansfield, Ohio Police Department photographed men in a restroom under the main square of the city. The cameramen hid in a closet and watched the clandestine activities through a two-way mirror. The film they shot was used in court as evidence against the defendants, all of whom were found guilty of sodomy, which at that time carried a mandatory minimum sentence of one year in the state penitentiary. The original surveillance footage shot by the police came into the possession of director William E. Jones while he was researching this case for a documentary project. The unedited scenes of ordinary men of various races and classes meeting to have sex were so powerful that the director decided to present the footage with a minimum of intervention. “Tearoom” is a radical example of film presented “as found” for the purpose of circulating historical images that have otherwise been suppressed.

Armageddon stretches into three long days, trapping three women in a house as darkness shrouds over the world and fulfils the doomsday prophecy.

The suffocating, palpable dark turns every second into an agonizing eternity and they are catapulted into choosing between ways to combat their mortal dread – turning to religion for any desperate hope of redemption or satiating their lustful desires for one another in what could be their last remaining hours.

Vampyres L NX
26.10., 20:15, Eiszeit 1
Great Britain, 1974, 87 minutes, José Ramón Larraz, English original version

Vampyres
A large mansion and the surrounding woodland are for sale. For some reason, it is difficult to sell it… Two female vampires ensnare male and female victims with their sexy bodies, then chew their blood the old way. When an American Lady fights back, they team-up against her…

This Hammer-flavored gothic outing (originally titled “Daughters Of Dracula”) involves the sanguinary exploits of two female vampires who bed down together in a queen-sized coffin by day and seduce male and female victims by moonlight, leading to lots of steamy soft-core sex scenes followed by copious amounts of the red stuff. One of their victims falls in love with Moore, even as he grows increasingly anemic due to her nutritional requirements. Moody photography and lush sets enhance the film’s fatally hedonistic atmosphere, and the stars assay temptingly feline performances that render their characters’ seductive powers chillingly real. This was a late entry in the European “lesbian vampire” sub-genre, a 1970s phenomenon made popular by such filmmakers as Jean Rollin and Jess Franco that made a comeback in the late 1990s.
