Feminist Porn Night

September 25, 2015 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Screen Shot 2015-08-20 at 08.13.44

Is it possible to make ‘feminist porn’?

By creating and watching pornography that challenges the ingrained sexual stereotypes of the mainstream adult film industry, can we use this sexually radical filmmaking as a kind of weapon? Reversing gender clichés, pushing boundaries, and empowering. And can we get off on that?! Join us for an evening of discussion, provocation… and PORN.

We will screen a selection of work followed by a discussion with directors Marit Östberg, Christa Joo Hyun D’Angelo, and Eric Pussyboy. Curated by Marie Lidén and hosted by Emily Benita.

Content note: hardcore porn and extreme scenarios.

Over 18’s only.

Screening with English subtitles. Post-film Q&A will be BSL interpreted.

£5/£4 Conc/Free unemployed and asylum seekers. To book tickets please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.

Full Programme

On Your Back Woman! (5m)

Dir. Maja Borg, Year: 2009

An investigation of modern female sexuality exposing the ‘lady machismo’, a sadomasochistic contest that leaves the spectator in a burlesque dance of willpower, compassion, pain, physical, and emotional strength.

Marit (22m)

Dir. Christa Joo Hyun D’Angelo, Year: 2014

A video essay featuring Marit Östberg candidly exploring the sexual politics of both mainstream ideologies and her own films as a feminist activist probing representations of the nuclear family, queer bodies, and desires that exist apart from hetero-normative practices and aesthetics. Östberg’s musings also investigate porn as a feminist activist medium and the subject of “exoticism” as a form of racism.

Authority (16m)

A women is caught by a copy in the act of painting graffiti. She runs from the scene with the cop close behind. Perhaps the police officer knows her own fate when she sets off on the chase. Perhaps she succumbs to the will of the graffiti girl. Clearly, somebody needs to be punished.
