A Night At The Adonis S X
26.10., 18:15, Eiszeit 1
USA, 1977, 83 minutes, Jack Deveau, English original version

“A Night At The Adonis” tracks Jack Wrangler’s night of sexploits at the titular Adonis Theatre, a notorious Times Square movie house. It strikes a successful balance between romantic comedy and nasty man-on-man action, not lacking in thick plot. The film opens with an establishing shot of the Adonis coming to life, its neon lights shimmering in the late evening twilight as the employees go about checking out the facilities.

Bacchanale H S X
24.10., 16:00, Moviemento 1
USA, 1970/2006, 65 minutes, John & Lem Amero, no dialogue

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!

The Bad Luck Betties H X
22.10., 20:00, Moviemento 1

The Bad Luck Betties
When four aspiring starlets find themselves in the seedy underbelly of show business, their dreams of stardom turn into a living hell. Once deemed “damaged goods”, they end up fending for themselves on the margins of society.

Now hardened, restless and with an insatiable appetite for revenge and ultra violence, they take control of “Transaction Junction”, the main intersection used by the purveyors of vice to supply Hollywood’s demand for contraband. Their lucrative racket is at risk when the completion of the freeway bypass threatens to take away their control of their “Hollywood connection”. No one gets in or out without paying their dues!! These vixens had nothing to loose and everything to gain!!

24.10., 20:00, Eiszeit 1
26.10., 16:00, Moviemento 1
USA, 2008, 112 minutes, Eon McKai, English original version

The Doll Underground
Inspired by the late 60s activist-turned-militant Leftist collective, The Weathermen, the Doll Underground are here to wake up our day-dreaming nation from the financial dictatorship that continues to crush it. Lead by Dorrn Adorn, these sexually-charged revolutionaries take refuge in LA’s now entombed Belmont Tunnel. Outfitted in Lolita Gothic uniforms and strapped with home-made explosives, the Dolls plot to take down the Owners by any means necessary.

Edward Penishands H X
24.10., 22:15, Eiszeit 1, with “Filthy”
USA, 1991, 83 minutes, Paul Norman, English original version

A trashy, pornographic homage to Tim Burton’s “Edward Scissorhands” and a true party film.

Feeling It!
26.10., 22:15, Moviemento 1
Great Britain, 2007/2008, 70 minutes, Petra Joy, English original version

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 S X
26.10., 20:30, Eiszeit 1
USA, 2008, ca. 90 minutes, Matthias von Fistenberg, no dialogue

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.

Forced Entry H X
23.10., 22:30, Moviemento 3
USA, 1973, 82 minutes, Shaun Costello, English original version
with an introduction by Stefan Höltgen (Bonn)

George Bataille’s Story of the Eye H L S X FT
23.10., 18:15, Moviemento 2
25.10., 16:15, Eiszeit 1
USA, 2004, 81 minutes, Andrew Repasky McElhinney, English original version

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!

Hell’s Kittens. A Vampire Supermodel Love Story (Director’s Cut) H X
25.10., 22:15, Eiszeit 1
USA, 2008, 82 minutes, Joe Gallant, English original version

Hell's Kittens. A Vampire Supermodel Love Story
Vapid model-trash find themselves fucked, bitten and turned by a new race of future-humans. The government is hot on everyone’s trail, eager to wipe out this new breed. Anarchist polemic and hot, nasty, anal / atm throughout…

24.10., 18:15, Moviemento 3
Germany, 2008, 112 minutes, Jörg Andreas, English original version

Homopunx
Handsome young Frenchman Brice is visiting Berlin. He stays in a sexy shared flat and his new flatmates party and fuck all night. The next day they take him along to a porno photoshoot, where even shy Brice gets a share of the hot boy action.

In Search Of The Wild Kingdom L X F
23.10., 18:00, Moviemento 1, with “Beautiful Agony”
26.10., 22:15, Xenon, with “Beautiful Agony”
USA, 2006, 60 minutes, Shine Louise Huston, English original version

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.

Island Fever H X
25.10., 22:30, Moviemento 3
Czech Republic, 2003, 90 minutes, Tom Herold, English original version

Island Fever
“Island Fever” travels to sensual and mysterious Ibiza to experience life amidst the island’s feverish landscapes. Director Tom Herold (“Fucker Takes All”, Pornfilmfestival 2006) uses the island’s magic to weave together a tale of passion, intrigue and non-stop sun-soaked sex. From poolside passion to steamy sexual encounters on a luxurious yacht, Herold makes great use of his backdrops and his gorgeous tanned cast. “Island Fever” follows the story of a struggling writer (played by Herold) who can’t decide what kind of story to write to portray his beloved island, Ibiza. Through his indecision, we get treated to a host of different sex fantasy scenarios.

Japan Japan S X FT
26.10., 20:15, Eiszeit 1, mit “Pathways”
Israel / USA / Germany, 2007, 65 minutes, Lior Shamriz, Hebrew original version with English subtitles

Japan Japan
The movie tells the story of Imri who at 19 goes to live in Tel Aviv, but dreams of moving to Japan. Through his relationships and encounters and in diverse cinematic tools, we are introduced to the young man’s life. An exploration of living in the exotic city of Tel Aviv is presented through a hero who is himself in the midst of exploring his own choice of an exotic place. A unique correlation is formed between the hero’s misconception of Japan and ours of him. The movie was constructed by both improvised and pre-scripted scenes, as required by the nature of each scene.

Johan S X
24.10., 22:30, Eiszeit 2
France, 1976, 90 minutes, Philippe Vallois, French original version with English subtitles

Johan
Johan was supposed to be the main actor in a movie, but he is in jail right now. So the director searches for a substitute for Johan in the gay scene of Paris in the 1970s, only to come to the conclusion that the beautiful, mysterious Johan can’t be substituted.

John S X F
24.10., 16:30, Moviemento 3
25.10., 22:15, Xenon
New Zealand, 2006, 86 minutes, Astrid Glitter, English original version

John is a regular kiwi guy who’s tired of one-night stands. Men just want to shoot and leave, when John really just wants to have someone to love. An array of curious characters surround John’s life – Rebecca, the jealous flatmate, Leigh with his “bag of tricks”, straight workmate Andy and hirsute Bill; bisexual friend Steve and his accomodating fiancée Joanna who lets him have sex with men, and Hunter, the stripper, with Darius, his driver.
“John” is the first XXX gay release 100% made in New Zealand – it’s a real story, with realistic characters, plots, a generous amount of gay sex scenes and a rocking soundtrack including ska, punk, jazz, metal, electronica and easy listening.

Israel, 2008, 60 minutes, Roy Raz, Hebrew original version with English subtitles

My Israeli Platoon
Five stories based on the director’s experience in the Israeli army illustrate what really happens behind the scenes of one of the strongest army forces in the world. Through the events that unravel in this film, taking place in an army base in the South of the country and also in Tel Aviv, we get to see a darker side of the IDF. From the first day in the base until the first weekend at home, through some hard moments in the long weeks of service and with narration by the director himself, this semi porn-documentary shows that three years in the Israeli army cannot be that bad…

Mayhem ensues especially when Marcia unwittingly applies for a job as a model and finds out she’s about to star in an adult movie. Based on the popular TV series “The Brady Bunch”, this is “Parody Porn” at its best.

24.10., 22:00, Moviemento 1, with “Pornography – A Musical”
Danmark, 1996, 83 minutes, Torben Skjødt Jensen, Danish original version with English subtitles

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.

Pornography – A Musical (Pornografi – en musical) H X

SMS Sugar Man H NX SW
24.10., 18:00, Moviemento 1
South Africa, 2008, 80 minutes, Aryan Kaganof, English original version

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)

Solos S NX
26.10., 18:15, Moviemento 2, with “Sex By Nationality”
Singapur, 2007, 68 minutes, Zihan Loo & Kan Lume, no dialogue

Solos
This mysterious, inventive film from Singapore uses a taboo subject – the sexual relationship between a male teacher and male student – to explore the fallout from an all-consuming love affair. 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.

Tearoom
25.10., 20:15, Eiszeit 1, with “The Fall Of Communism As Seen In Gay Pornography”
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.

Tears Of Ecstasy (Ekusutashi no namida: Chiin) S NX
24.10., 16:30, Eiszeit 2, with “Sex Brain Melody (Ep. 2)”
Japan, 1995, 60 minutes, OKI Hiroyuki, Japanese original version with English subtitles

25.10., 16:15, Moviemento 2
Philippinen, 2007, 90 minutes, Khavn De La Cruz, Tagalog original version with English subtitles

Three Days of Darkness
Armageddon stretches into three long days, trapping three women in a house as darkness shrouds over the world and fulfils the doomsday prophecy. As they claw and feel their way around the ominous old house, the women are confounded with their demons within and the demons unleashed on earth. 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.

Voyeur H X
