A night of erotic short films and Q&A with director, Erika Lust
Time: 18:45 and 21:00
We were mesmerized and totally turned on by Erika Lust’s steamy adult cinema at her last Berlin screening, so we definitely won’t be missing this one. Erika’s films flesh out fantasies of intimacy, love, lust, passion, feminist and queer desires with artistry and ethical awareness, making them a welcome alternative to the mainstream porn industry.
The crowd-sourced project, XConfessions, was started by Erika in 2013 and brings the fantasies of real people to life. The stories are submitted to Erika and then transformed into short erotic films. They range from fantastical and funny, to intimate explorations of taboo and fetish.
Experience the short films for yourself on February 18th at the screening hosted by the Berlin Film Society. Erika Lust will be present for a Q&A with academic researcher and writer, Lisa Andergassen whose research focuses feminist theory, imagery in the digital age, and porn studies. There will be two screenings, but they’ll sell out fast so don’t wait to book your tickets!
