Erika Lust: XConfessions Open Air
Ethical porn director Q&A, and wild afterparty
Dates: 12.07.17 and 14.07.17
Pornography is a taboo and contentious genre. Can porn be art? Many artists in Berlin argue that it can, just read our interview with the team behind Pornceptual.
To investigate for yourself, check out the open air screening of Erika Lust’s XConfessions presented by Berlin Film Society at Sisyphos, an old DDR dog biscuit factory turned exclusive electronic music club. For this specific project, Erika’s fans anonymously contribute their personal sex stories and she recreates them artfully on the big screen. XConfessions is the first crowd-sourced project in the history of the erotic film industry. Her work challenges mainstream pornography by creating ethical erotica focusing on women’s pleasure, diversity, and cinematography.
The event will also include the Berlin premiere of a short film by cult filmmaker Bruce LaBruce, called Refugees Welcome, produced by Erika Lust. Read our interview with the director to learn more about his subversive work. Be sure to stick around after the film screenings for a Q&A with both directors and what is sure to be a memorable after-party at Sisyphos. Book your tickets here.
