Berlin: Then and Now
Friday 27th November
Doors 6.30pm for 7pm start
Airport (1994) and Shutter (2014) are two films from Berlin that manage to capture the spirit of the time and place they were made. In 1994, Manuela Kay and Silke Dunkhorst made the now classic Airport. Opening at the titular (Tegal) Airport, we see flight attendants engaging in some inflight entertainment in the toilets. From here we follow them to one of the city’s very active sex clubs where we meet some dreamy leather dykes. In 2014 Goodyn Green made Shutter, a collection of beautifully shot and orchestrated scenes that reflect the freedom of contemporary queer Berlin.

Spotlight: Antonio Da Silva
Friday 27th November
Doors 9pm for 9.30pm start
Antonio Da Silva is an award-winning Portuguese artist and filmmaker based in London. His films explore such topics as cruising and public sex, internet hook ups, performance and voyeurism. Stylistically diverse, these films draw together elements of narrative, documentary and art cinema to create poignant, erotic and politically astute considerations of gay male sexuality. As Da Silva himself says ‘the penis can also take part in poetry’.

CLOSING NIGHT: Coming Out Like a Porn Star – Book Launch and Panel Discussion
Sunday 29th November
Doors 5pm for 5.30pm start
Porn and sex work stigma deeply affects the lived experience of porn professionals. To launch the publication of Coming Out Like a Porn Star, a collection of essays on pornography, protection and privacy edited by prominent porn performer Jiz Lee, Perv will bring together a panel of local porn industry professionals to discuss their own experiences of ‘outness’ in their intersections of identities. The panel will be chaired by Zahra Stardust. She and Gala Vanting will also be reading their work from the book and will be available for book signing during the event.
