Luke & Jack present: Bishop Black Retrospective

December 8, 2018 @ 9:00 pm - 11:00 pm


We are excited to bring Berlin-based actor and performer Bishop Black to SQIFF to present a retrospective of his amazing and varied work. Bishop has worked with some of the most prodigious and provocative directors in queer porn including Shu Lea Cheang, Erika Lust, Morgana Muses, and Bruce LaBruce. He has handpicked for us a selection of films central to the development of his career and approach, exploring his transition from gay male to queer porn and his identity as a black queer performer amongst other themes. Join us for a stimulating and seductive evening of x-rated shorts followed by Bishop in conversation about his art with Drew Bigglestone and Ian Diamond of Luke & Jack.

In partnership with Luke & Jack, Scotland’s premiere sex boutique.

Having My Cake (20m)
Dir: Morgana Muses, Year: 2015
Having My Cake is a sumptuous film detailing a woman’s journey to Paris where she manages to not only have her cake, but eat it as well. Starring Morgana Muses and Bishop Black.

Dominate Me (12m)
Dir. Erika Lust, Year: 2016
Can you handle this one, guys and girls? This is a story dripping with lust. A story about ecstasy in the land between pleasure and pain, where restriction can feel like the warmest embrace, and the lash of a whip like the softest kiss… Erika Lust’s latest release in XConfessions is a BDSM story about a man who longs to be dominated by a woman.

The End (22m)
Dir. Noel Alejandro, Year: 2018
Javier is an obsessed artist who is grieving the end of a relationship. His sorrow comes as a combination of memories, instinct and denial, and the mourning’s harsh feelings will compromise his sense of reality. Surrounded by doubt, and subjected to several addictions, Javier fights to find peace – until his lattermost move take him to a surrealistic emotional purgatory.

Gloaming (12m)
Dir. Vex Ashley & Four Chambers, Year: 2017
The period of time when the sun falls below the horizon line and tears of blue and orange gradiate the sky. I’ve always called this indigo hour but apparently it’s more commonly called blue hour and the Scottish call it the gloaming.

The indigo in the sky isn’t exactly black or blue, it’s not quite day or night. It exists in a gap, without definition.

Zombie Queer Punk Urban Post Porn Horror Show (5m)
Dir. Tchivett, Year: 2017
Basically a crazy romp through industrial Berlin by porn stars made up as zombies, all of them licking and humping anything in sight like they’re fresh brains.
