SHORT FILM PROGRAMME: HEAVENLY BODIES
It can be a whole lot of fun to live in a queer body. These films celebrate the joys and pleasure of kink, sex and queer physicality

This Programme is also showing on Friday 10th September at 14:00

GIRL GANG
D: Charlie Benedetti
Erika Lust presents a film which says it shows 'real lesbian sex like never before'. Get ready for some great tunes, great boots and great sex.

OINK
D: Rob Eagle
This experimental doc offers a portrait of gay men who relate to the gay “pig” sexual imaginary, providing insight into their experiences of identity, masculinity, community, belonging, sexual pleasure and intimacy.

FISHERMAN
D: Nicky Miller
A fisherman is at the lake when a beautiful young man gets into the water. Fascinated by him, the fisherman begins an idyllic sexual trip into nature.

SOVEREIGN SEX
D: Michael Ellsburg
A docu-porn that follows the experience of Raz as they explore their sexuality for the first time. A decade ago, Raz's virginity was taken by rape; now they are choosing to have their first sovereign sexual experience by pegging their close friend Daemon, on camera.

WHIPPING BOY
D: Tiffany Scott-Maddox
Whipping Boy follows a day in the life of a 'house boy' whose life is dedicated to serving the powerful women who work in his dungeon, and the warm, sweet and intimate bonds that form between them.

COMMUNION
D: Luca Asta
Holding a baby, holding someone, holding something, holding faith; these are spaces of comfort felt within embodied gestures of communion. A peaceful film to reflect on the wonders of the body.
