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?

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.

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.

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.

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 Soundings H NX

Indonesia, 2008, 7 minutes, Edwin, original version with English subtitles

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.

Lezzieflick“Lezzieflick” ist ein dekonstruktiver Remix vorhandener Heteropornos mit pseudolesbischer Handlung. Die sexuellen Handlungen sind klar erkennbar. Die Körperformen jedoch verfließen und wandeln sich ständig. Durch den Gebrauch von Morph-Software wird das grobe Raster der Print-Bilder moiréartig verzerrt, einige Pixel werden zu sperrigen Flächen aufgeblasen, andere zu nadelartigen Linien gequetscht. Das grobe Raster entspricht dem Informationswert des Mainstream-Hetero-Bildmaterials. Geringe Bildauflösung steht hier für geringen Informationswert.

A deconstructive remix of pseudo-lesbian storylines within hetero porn. The low resolution of the morphed pictures reflects the low information value of the original mainstream footage.

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.

Schwarzwald
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 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.

She Was Asking For It
Ein junger Mann wird von zwei Frauen so lange gequält, erniedrigt und vergewaltigt, bis er die Gelegenheit zur Rache erhält.

Dario Argento meets Maria Beatty in this sado-erotic giallo about a young man who is tortured, humiliated and raped by two women and then proceeds to inflict the kind of vengeance that gives new meaning to the term “torture-porn”.

Soulmate
Eine komplexe Studie über Entfremdung und sexuelle Begierde, erzählt aus der Sicht einer älteren Vermieterin und ihres jungen Mieters.

Eerie, erotic, and touching, “Soulmate” is a complex study of alienation and sexual obsession. Told from the point-of-view of a 55-year old woman, it explores longing and objectification through the unconventional story of a landlady and her younger male tenant. A creepily evocative film about voyeurism in this-old-boarding-house whose proprietor gets ideas after one rummage too many through her tenant’s stuff. The story sneaks up on you like a slow-building shiver.

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…

Toybox
Ein Einblick in die Abgründe dessen, was Männern so alles mit ihrem Penis anstellen – präsentiert als Sammlung von kurzen Animationen.

“Toybox” combines creepiness and playfulness in a series of animations that manipulate the most misused toy of all – the penis. Stripped of eros and emotion, the scenarios of sex-gone-mad play with the absurd qualities of an appendage and a desire that has a mind of its own, and a drive so strong that it leads to self-destruction. Wrik Mead’s animated film is drawn from the seedy and sometimes sad world of men’s sexual play.

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.

Vampyros Lesbos
In hochstilisierten Bildern erweist Matthew Saliba Jess Francos Klassiker von 1971 seine Referenz. Dabei gelingt ihm das Kunststück, seine Geschichte völlig ohne Dialoge und ausschließlich anhand von unbewegten Einzelbildern zu erzählen. Erotisch, künstlerisch wertvoll – und blutrot… Der Film wird im Vorprogramm zu “Durch die Nacht mit … Pierre Woodman & Brian Yuzna” gezeigt.
Linda is a bored and lonely housewife whose excursion into a world of sexual liberation with her lover Countess Nadine is tragically cut short when her cuckolded husband Omar brutally murders Nadine and then proceeds to give Linda what she really needs… a good “deep-dicking!”

France, 2008, 5 minutes, Patrick Volve, original version with English subtitles

Am Rande von Montevideo, direkt am Meer, liegt der “Luxuria Parking Lot”. Des Tages ein normaler Parkplatz, finden sich hier des Nachts unzählige Paare zusammen… Ein Blick in die Tiefe, oder doch ein bloßes Gleiten über die Oberfläche? Das kurze, experimentelle Video von Patrick Volve überlässt die Antwort dem Zuschauer.

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…
