Real Video Trilogy (2001) DVD NTSC, color & b/w, 31 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic, Philosophical, Technology

Come Softly, 1999, video, 11 min If I had a Hammer, 2000-01, video, 8 min Lucky, 2001, video, 12 min The breakdown of identity, communication, and human relationships via the internet. An electronic reality of porn, beer, sex, cash, and drugs. Crafted from softly pixilated QuickTime, NetMeeting sessions, emotive vintage pop, airplane disaster footage, online porn, streaming Hollywood trailers, and the curious hypnotic qualities of taping off computer monitors, Bobby Abate's internet-sex-n-death thrillogy explores new anxieties made possible by technology, and the profoundly intimate places that tiny images and lonely piano chords burrow deep within the soul. Real Videos is like a tender and tumultuous visual virus, created to infect a world where humans live through movies, die through malfunctions and, in between, email their love. -- Ed Halter, The New York Underground Film Festival 2001

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic, Political / Social Activism

The world is recommitting sexual-political suicide by daily insertion of missile-cocks into self-orifices.

From Romance to Ritual (1985) Super 8 to Video, color, 20 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Body, Erotic, Ethnic / Multicultural

This film is formed around several scenes of women telling stories to the camera of their sexual history and experience. This material is intercut and juxtaposed with related footage concerning girls and their growing up, memory and the learning process and the received truth of history lessons. This film as a whole makes for an uncomfortable fit between women's personal experience and the official dogma of our culture's history. The filming style is of the ethno-graphic film without the expert observer and of the home movie without the father.

"THE DEADMAN charts the adventures of a nearly naked heroine who leaves the corpse of her dead lover in a country house, goes to a bar and sets in motion a scabrous free-form orgy before returning to her house to die. The film manages to approximate the transgressive poetic prose of Bataille (a mixture of elegance, raunchy defilement and barbaric splendor) while celebrating female sexual desire without the usual patriarchal-porn trimmings." -- Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader Made with Keith Sanborn.

Voyeuristic Tendencies (1984) 16mm, black and white, 17 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic, Films about Film, Media

VOYEURISTIC TENDENCIES is not so much a film about voyeurism as it is our tendency to be voyeuristic. That tendency, nurtured by the filmmakers carefully crafted succession of visual teases and exploited by the camera's ability to become our eyes, becomes in increasingly evident as the film progresses. The camera teases the viewer, in this case, co-voyeur, not with sexual or erotic innuendo, but rather with graphic and aesthetic challenges. The partially opened window of a woman's dressing room forces us to realize our urge to see more about these hidden worlds. This type of cinematically- induced self- realization makes VOYEURISTIC TENDENCIES a powerfully human film. Most of the people we view appear to be merely going through the motions. Their actions seem hauntingly void of emotion or thought. By temporarily becoming voyeurs, we were hoping for bigger and better things, e. g. passion... melodrama, but are left with only a secretary nervously tapping her nails. ... a perfect sex film for the 80's. We are teased, cajoled, lured and finally snubbed as we learn one possible answer to what has happened to sex; it has been subsumed in our society's current confusion between artifice and reality. -- James Irwin also available from One Way Films

Adventures of Sylvia Couski, The (1972) 16mm, color, 85.5 min

Genre: Narrative

Keywords: Comedy, Erotic, Music, Queer / Bi / Trans

This film is a musical comedy, or maybe a fairy tale... Everything reduced to the surface as in the paintings of the Primitive School, as in dreams, as in musical comedies... A story as a pretext for a series of portraits, and a series of portraits as a pretext for an invented story in an invented city (Paris), a city of transvestites trying to relive the Belle Epoque of festivities and art... "I saw Arrieta's film last June, in Toulon. It was made in Paris so I thought it was French and I was surprised to see a French film recording the world of the transvestite because this subject has been a tabu in modern (new) French cinema. Later I found out that Arrieta was Spanish, from Madrid, and that Paris was only one of his stations. "French or Spanish -- I found Arrieta's film compelling, informative, entertaining, and beautiful. As I said, its subject is the Paris transvestite scene and it's depicted with the flair of Jack Smith, the directness of Andy Warhol, and the special tenderness of Arrieta. I salute the Poet." -- Jonas Mekas, February, 1975.

A delicate and arousing treatment of lovemaking. Its mode is simple and classical, combining technical mastery and personal restraint. The image is vivid subtle and ambiguous while the sound is sharp and clear. Barlett's film, in the judge's opinion, most closely approximated their idea of what is an erotic film should be -- an imaginative, suggestive, artistic, non- clinical evocation of the sexual act. -- Bruce Conner, Maurice Girodias, Arthur Knight: judges

Sluts and Goddesses Video Workshop or How to be a Goddess in 101 Easy Steps, The (1992) VHS NTSC, color, 52.00 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: Body, Erotic

It is said if you follow the video carefully you will "be happier and healthier, improve your sex life, and even create miracles..." THE SLUTS AND GODDESSES VIDEO WORKSHOP OR HOW TO BE A SEX GODDESS IN 101 EASY STEPS is a humorous, absurd, heartfelt and worshipful look at SEX. This tape, featuring an all woman cast, is made especially for women to inspire more sensual and sexual pleasure in their lives. THE SLUTS AND GODDESSES VIDEO WORKSHOP OR HOW TO BE A SEX GODDESS IN 101 EASY STEPS utilizes the forbidden and ancient roles of women to achieve personal transformation. Guided through this adventure by eroticist Annie Sprinkle and her team of "Transformation Facilitators" one encounters the more exotic ways to stimulate pleasure such as: flagellation by oak leaves, gender bending, body shaving, sword dancing, ritual body painting, contortions, menstrual blood, female ejaculation, rhythmic deep breathing, primal screaming, group masturbation, passionate safe sex and more in this guided adventure. This dazzling video challenges the boundaries of "femininity," of the "good girl/bad girl" myths and the definitions of sexual "norms." It is meant to unleash women's sexual powers and remind them that sex is sacred. It is blatant and undyingly explicit, an "eye fuck." Annie Sprinkle and Maria Beatty are daring and bold in their approach to a new (or perhaps ancient) freedom of the body.

I knew that I had film material of surgery + I mixed the tied-up woman with the surgery material confrontationally + still a few more + and to 2/3 of a drawer of found footage until Blicklust-end. The "Pumping-screen" films THE MURDER MYSTERY + BLICKLUST are the first two of a planned six-part series which reflects on sexuality + violence. Basically, I show what I always see on TV, my favorite source. I like to watch TV without sound + with other manipulations. I watch restlessly the real + fake dead bodies. They are always there + I have simply gotten used to the fact that TV is a pump of corpses. In fact, I like better the filtered reality than the actual one. I prefer distance rather than closeness.

Soul Freeze (1967) 16mm, black and white, 25 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic, Psychology & Mental Health

"SOUL FREEZE is Cowan's masterpiece to date, and one of the most consciously anguished of films. It is centered around a man who is being 'tempted' by female sexuality. But it begins not with the man, but with two mythic images: a woman carrying a sign with the man's picture on it through the streets, and white, burning candles. This kind of imagery is contained throughout the film: things appear that are not part of the 'story' but are part of the feelings that Cowan draws from his 'story': the girl in the coffin, whom the man worships, the flesh being cut up, the geometrical shapes and finally the burning picture at the end. But Cowan's ideas are expressed most fully not by the presence of these things but by the way the whole film is shot and cut. To the subject of the film Cowan brings exceptionally violent feelings concerning the existence of human flesh; perhaps, concerning the physicality of all things. The violent cuts, images flashing on and off, throughout the film, partly expresses this. But it is also contained in the shooting style, which turns objects into blocks of light and dark. The borders of these objects seem to be clashing with the borders of the adjacent ones; the conflict, accentuated by the cutting, seems to result from a wish to destroy or deny the physicality of all things. But Cowan does not propose anything to replace it; and in fact the film is inextricably tied to that physicality. Thus the film expresses a great internalized violence, and intense sense of pain; but at the same time it is beautiful, for like any art, the pain is more than simple pain, it comes out of a form that contains more than can be said in words and it is the form which is beautiful."--Fred Camper

Times For (1970) 16mm, color, 80 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic, Psychology & Mental Health

Once upon anytime in a world like now, any man wandered into an island of women. Their succulent presence, like many Circles, drew his fantasy. He follows. He seeks a kingdom, but as I foretold you, we're all spirits, and are melted into air -- thin air -- and, like the baseless fabric of this vision, the cloud-capped towers, the gorgeous palaces, the solemn temples, the great globe itself, yea, all which it inherits, shall dissolve, and, like this insubstantial pageant faded, leave not a track behind. We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep .... TIMES FOR is a larger entry into dream reality. An unfulfilled man renders himself to the unrealized sensuality of four women. In his drifting search he fails and fades in the same loneliness as the women. The film is the reality and a metaphor for the intensities of sexual experience. "... His camera is a never-static instrument of his intrusion into the fantasy/reality of the relationships he is dealing with and forming .... TIMES FOR is one of the few erotic masterpieces." -- program note, National Film Theatre, London

Surrealist poet and artist Charles Henri Fords 1971 film, Johnny Minotaur is a lyrical explosion of taboos: incest, intergenerational desire, pansexuality and autoeroticism are a few of the issues he grapples with through mythopoeic, sensual imagery, recitations of his diaries and a philosophical debate featuring an impressive narration by such artists as Salvador Dali, Allen Ginsberg, Warren Sonbert and Lynne Tillman. Unseen for over two decades, The New American Cinema Group, Inc./The Film-Makers Cooperative has restored Johnny Minotaur and resuscitated this classic of forgotten, queer cinema that belongs alongside the films of Kenneth Anger, Derek Jarman and Jean Genet.

Poetic Justice (Hapax Legomena II) (1972) 16mm, black and white, 31.00 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic

"In (POETIC JUSTICE), Frampton presents us with a 'scenario' of extreme complexity in which the themes of sexuality, infidelity, voyeurism are 'projected' in narrative sequence entirely through the voice telling the tale--again it is the first person singular speaking, however, in the present tense and addressing the characters as 'you,' 'your lover,' and referring to an 'I.' We see, on screen, only the physical aspect of a script, papers resting on a table...and the projection is that of a film as consonant with the projection of the mind."--Annette Michelson.

Blind Love (1982) 16mm, black and white, 11 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic

Blind love is a passion that eludes temperance and plunges lovers into a darkness that is luminous. In the film, we MAY see the light of their ecstasy. This is no pretty picture: sensuality, desire, pain and loss, all flash and spend their rhythms before the orgasm subsides. The film has been made as a work of silence and of music.

Puss! The Booted Cat (1995) 16mm, black and white, 13 min

Genre: Narrative

Keywords: Erotic

PUSS! THE BOOTED CAT is an erotic short that laps up the various incarnations of the classic fairytale Puss-In-Boots. The tale, popularized in 17th century France by author Charles Perrault, is here transformed into a contemporary adventure of unrequited love, lands-titles-and-goods-to-be-conquered, identities-to-be-claimed, and feminine feline power. The heroine, who is both the woman Mademoiselle Puss and Puss the car, battles loss and misfortune with irrepressible rebellious energies. At last she is able to relax in her throne of the Bubastic Queendom, enjoying music, dance, and a most unusual mushroom--it had once been the ogre whose vengeance is the catalyst of this particular episode in one of her nine lives. The film's black-and-white images, intertitles, nonsynchronous sound, low tech "tricks", and theatricalized acting-style borrow from early film even as its modern-day references, fast paced editing, and feminist sensibility place it paws down in the present. --C.

The odd blend of Hollywood glamour and drama with all-too-real life creates and inspires counterpoint of unattainable desire against unbearable actuality." -- Ken Kelman "This film could cheer an arthritic gorilla, and audiences, apparently sensitized by its blithely accurate representation of feelings few among them can have escaped, rise from their general stupor to cheer it back." -- James Stoller, The Village Voice

Orgia (1967) 16mm, color, 12 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic

A fragment of an abandoned, long work concerning St. Teresa of Avila. A sexual orgy symbolizing the decadance of modern society. Maas, who acts in this film, plays the devil while a wild orgy goes on in his living-room. There is the fantastic drag queen doing her job in the bathroom while frenzied love-making, to the incomparable baroque-jazz music of Tiji Ito, is carried on in Maas's baroque apartment. The camera in bird-swift flight depicts a scene of total decadence as Andy Warhol's Jackie Kennedy careens through the air. By way of explanation: the opening scene shows the director handing out masks to the actors-the same ones used in LSD WALL by John Hawkins. The taking of LSD was part of the original script. --W. M.

Film of Her, The (1996) 16mm, black and white, 12 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: body, erotic, Found Footage

"...Morrison's THE FILM OF HER is based on the story of a Library on Congress clerk who saved a vaultful of paper reels, documenting the earliest days of cinema, from the incinerator. A gorgeous tribute to the art form's origins, this 12-minute short is anchored by the memory of this man, who has fixed in his mind since boyhood the image of a woman he saw in an early porn film. 'The Film of Her' is what drives the clerk to save the films, this collective memory, and it also serves as the focal point for Morrison's thoughts on personal experience and the happenstance of history. Drawing comparisons between the primordial ooze and the elemental flicker of a light projector, or between Lumiere babes, magic a la Melies, and the gears of industry, Morrison reminds us that even the most brilliant and brave creations begin as cherished ideas nurtured in dedicated imaginations and subjected to the whims of chance." - Hazel-Dawn Dumpert, L.A.

Christmas On Earth (1963) 16mm, black and white, 30 miins min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: body, erotic, queer

"A study in genital differentiation and psychic tumult." --Candy O' Brien "What you will be renting now is just what was filmed, uncut, unedited. Projection instructions: The film remains on two reels (A and B), requiring two projectors, to be projected simultaneously at sound speed. The film on the first projector fills the screen, while the image on the second projector is approximately one half smaller and fills the middle of the screen, superimposing on the first image. This can be done either by using different lenses, or by placing one projector closer to the screen. They begin simultaneously, though due to slight differences in speed of each projector, they end slightly different. I've added black leader to compensate for that. When both images are off, turn projectors off. I suggest if possible to use to of the same kind of projectors, and check them before projection. I also suggest that since this is the first time of veiwing this, to put Reel A on the largest screen, and Reel B on the inner, smaller screen, making sure each film is being projected heads out. To complete the cycle, a radio must be hooked up to a PA system, with a nice cross-section of psychic tumult like an AM rock station, turned on and played loud. Also (optional) color gels may be used in front of projector and moved and alternated by hand during the film. PLEASE return this film as it was send to you, whole. Thank you, Barbara Rubin.

Carolee Schneemann

Fuses (1967) 16mm, color, 23 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic

Filmed and edited by Schneemann; with herself, James Tenney and Kitch. "Pornography is an anti-emotional medium, in content and intent, and its lack of emotion renders it wholly ineffective for women. This absence of sensuality is so contrary to female eroticism that pornography becomes, in fact, anti-sexual. Schneemann's film, by contrast, is devastatingly erotic, transcending the surfaces of sex to communicate its true spirit, its meaning as an activity for herself and, quite accurately, women in general. Significantly, Schneemann conceives the film as shot through the eyes of her cat -- the impassive observer whose view of human sexuality is free of voyeurism and ignorant of morality. "In her attempt to reproduce the whole visual and tactile experience of lovemaking as a subjective phenomenon, Schneemann spent some three years marking on the film, baking it in the oven, even hanging it out the window during rainstorms on the off chance it might be struck by lightning. Much as human beings carry the physical traces of their experiences, so this film testifies to what it has been through and communicates the spirit of its maker. The red heat baked into the emulsion suffuses the film, a concrete emblem of erotic power." -- B. Ruby Rich, Chicago Art Institute Project at 18 fps.

He has attained for the first time in motion pictures a high level of art which is absolutely lacking in decorum; and a treatment of sex which makes us aware of the restraint of all previous filmmakers. "He has shown more clearly than anyone before how the poet's license includes all things, not only of spirit, but also of flesh; not only of dreams and of symbol, but also of solid reality. In no other art but the movies could this have so fully been done; and their capacity was realized by Smith." -- Film Culture "During its final deliberation, the selection jury decided to state explicitly that the majority of its members recognized the aesthetical and experimental qualities of the film FLAMING CREATURES by Jack Smith, but had to ascertain unanimously that the showing of it was impossible in regard to Belgian laws." -- Program Notes, Third International Experimental Film Competition, Knokke-Le-Zoute, Belgium, 1964 Awards: Fifth Independent Film Award, Film Culture; Prix Film Maudit, Third Int'l Film Exposition, Knokke-Le-Zoute, Belgium, 1964.

Mexico Laura (1984) 16mm, color, 30 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Erotic, Psychology & Mental Health

This film deals with the eroticization of memory in relation to "Laura" in Mexico. Different sections are concerned with different or varying presentations of the same material. Towards the end, Mexico begins to dominate. The visuals are taken from a 1950s travelogue film that is interspersed with the "ideal tango" music and a voiceover pointing out, through the adoption of a "poeticized Anglo voice," the inherent stereotypicality present. Instead of operating with a direct politics, however, the work hovers between issues of feminine and political space. The individual sections -- as so much of my work at this time -- reinforce and/or contradict each other, each seeming to take the film in a different direction.

Soft Fiction (1979) 16mm, black and white, 55 min

Genre: Documentary, Experimental

Keywords: Erotic

"Chick Strand's SOFT FICTION is a personal documentary that brilliantly portrays the survival power of female sensuality. It combines the documentary approach with a sensuous lyrical expressionism. Strand focuses her camera on people talking about their own experience, capturing subtle nuances in facial expressions and gestures that are rarely seen in cinema. The title SOFT FICTION works on several levels. It evokes the soft line between truth and fiction that characterizes Strand's own approach to documentary, and suggests the idea of softcore fiction, which is appropriate to the film's erotic content and style. It's rare to find an erotic film with a female perspective dominating both the narrative discourse and the visual and audio rhythms with which the film is structured. Strand continues to celebrate in her brilliant, innovative personal documentaries her theme, the reaffirmation of the tough resilience of the human spirit." -- Marsha Kinder, Film Quarterly

Fuses- Newly Restored Version with Added Footage (1967) 16mm, , 30 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: body, erotic

New restoration of the original 16mm collaged print - May 2007. Part of "Autobiographical Trilogy". Filming begun in 1964. This self- shot erotic film remains a controversial classic. With awards at Cannes (1968), the Yale Film Festival (1992) and showings at museums and Universities internationally, Fuses has nevertheless encountered censorship over the years. "[A]notorious masterpiece, a silent celebration in color of heterosexual love making, the film unifies erotic energies within a domestic environment through cutting, super- imposition and layering of abstract impressions scratched into the celluloid itself... Fuses succeeds perhaps more than any other film in objectifying the sexual streamings of the body's mind" - The Guardian

While strolling around in Greenpoint, Brooklyn one sunny afternoon, casually we entered a Rite Aid pharmaceutical to unknowingly discover an 'untold treasure trove'. At first glance it seems like any other drug store full of 'gadgets and gizmos aplenty', these artificial delights illuminated by the cheap industrial lights above surround a spectacular giant disco ball. This spherical misplaced object mirroring the culture of today, draws your attention to the grandiose dome shaped interior of yesteryear, a former theatre with its original ornate wall reliefs and elaborate balconies once overlooking the dramatized stories of the past, now hidden beneath the facade of cheap house hold 'whozits and whatzits. The ceiling black resembling the night sky, the shoddy store lights twinkling like the celestial heavens, your eyes move down to the aisles that become infinite spaces of information...the shelves being an orderly symmetrical system that display the complexities of modern necessities. You are confronted with the question of..'look at this stuff isn't it neat wouldn't you think my collections complete.?' sung to you in a satirical manner by Lee Kyle, a strong, physically masculine, tattooed, bearded man taking on the persona of the little mermaid, brings to light the social, cultural ideas and expectations of what it is to be a man or a woman.'wouldn't you think Im a girl, a girl who has everything thing'.

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: Body, Erotic, Queer, Bi, Trans

In a toxic haze of red, white and blue gloss paint, an artificial forest opens up, a sanctuary where baroque meets pop, fairytale meets grunge, purity meets sin. The iconic colors red, white and blue are re appropriated as nature. We find our current global climate coming to a climax, fueling our desire for an alternative reality. We're desperately seeking a new spirituality, a new mythology in a 'too rich' too attainable, technological age. This synthetic fantasy landscape channels the global anxieties of the past and present. This man-made forest belongs to the magical world of the fetish, the pre-ordained nature of artificial relics. Where disconnected identities are placed in a perverse unfamiliar foreign territory. A Place where everyone is a tourist.

I wanted to find a voice for the pain, an acknowledgement of the courage involved in choosing to have an abortion--a voice I felt had been silenced in our culture. "A haunting personal statement that continues to grow in the mind long after the viewing.' (SF Examiner). The saline procedure is induced at the end of the first trimester with a local anesthesia of 200 milligrams of hypertonic saline solution. It is a fairly traumatic birthing process, which includes dilation, contractions and a chemically induced early labor. The video was greeted with much controversy. many women felt I had played into the hands of the Right, appropriating "Back to Life" imagery and humanizing the embryo. I believe the piece stands up on its own as an emblematic statement about an issue that remains central and vital in these dangerous times: a woman's right to choose. I became pregnant with my son two years later.

New York's floral district, like Amsterdam's is a scene that is most vibrant at the crack of dawn when flowers are shipped in to wholesalers.

Not only are the better florists there to get the freshest flowers, but also the latest, freshest, and hottest dish. The scenario of this video is inspired by the central core of the design world: innuendo, rumors and gossip. Hearsay based on the cruising practices of one of New York's top gay floral designers. A vignette in a pastoral country setting--full of sunflowers and wild flowers--shows what the honey bee is really attracted to. Two lusty youths get it on atop a bed of exotic varieties.

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: art, body, erotic

From the collector of Marquis de Sade in the early 1960s, still a 'dark age ' of erotic picture, even his novels were forbidden to publish in Tokyo, I burrowed the copies of the engraving taken from the 18th century edition of "The story of Juliette" and of "The story of Justine." and rearranged along a story made from of the pictures not from the novels. An exercise out of the curiosity. It was the same year I made Ai(Love) in 1962 which consists of mostly extreme close-ups of love making. I have kept DeSade for many years in my closet without looking at it myself and have forgotten about it. By a chance I re-found the film 50 years later that there is something worth to see.(T.I, 2012)

Genre: Narrative, Experimental, Installation

Keywords: Arts & Artists, Body, Erotic, Films about Films, Philosophical, Queer/Bi/Trans

"Irma Vep, the last breath" is a multichannel video project based on Musidora, the French silent film actress, and the character she is best known for, Irma Vep from the film Les Vampires (dir. Louis Feuillade 1915). It's a piece about living in the shadows, criminal anxiety and the relationship between the artist and her creation, both fictional and real. Irma Vep and Musidora are played by Zackary Drucker and Mother Flawless Sabrina, two artists who have developed a relationship that transgresses the border of art and life, obliterating social expectations while documenting a cultural evolution of gender. This project mirrors their relationship with that of Musidora and Irma Vep, taking up motifs from the silent movie such as gazes, affected body language and the figure of the masked woman. Shot on a starkly illuminated set that makes space for anxious projections of desire and knowledge on the void that is Irma Vep - a space between the genders, between vamps of the silent era and the contemporary queer - 'Irma Vep, the last breath" smashes the shiny veneer of artifice to reveal dark, subconscious layers of identity

Performative Super 8 manipulation to Digital Projection. Saudade is a word in Portuguese and Galician that claims no direct translation in English. It describes a deep emotional state of nostalgic or profound melancholic longing for an absent something or someone. It often carries a repressed knowledge that the object of longing might never return. Its the recollection of feelings, experiences, places or events that once brought excitement, pleasure, well-being, which now triggers the senses and makes one live again. It can be described as an emptiness, like someone or something that should be there in a particular moment is missing, and the individual feels this absence. It brings sad and happy feelings all together, sadness for missing and happiness for having experienced the feeling. Through each showing, the film is manipulated live through a series of analog to digital processes. Originally a performance ritual act where the artist tries to control their body through a single repetitive motion and documented in Super 8mm. Inspired by the process of film, Saudade becomes a hypnotic trance of the moving body as an internal dialog of intentions, desires and experiences are exposed. Each film screening is unique and highlights different aspects of the film. PHOTOSENSITIVITY WARNING. Camera: Nung-Hsin Hu

HEMA (2015) 16mm, DVD NTSC, Color, 5:12 min

Genre: Experimental

Keywords: body, erotic, pesonal diary journal, queer bi trans, spiritual mystical

Hema is an intimate exploration of the female body's special connection with the ebb and flow of the universe, and it's crucial involvement in the direct replenishment, nourishment and care for natural rebirth and growth. The title of this work is a play on 'hemoglobin', the red protein responsible for moving oxygen through the blood of vertebrates. Much like hemoglobin directly influences the successful function of our lifeblood, it is my view that women are direct influencers on the successful function of reproducing in both the maternal-spiritual sense as well as the physical act. Our bodies are powerful vessels and this work intends to highlight the magical elements within the female body through the eyes of a queer woman who lives in a physical-spiritual place of empowerment, confidence and pride in mind and body. By focusing on this character's fetishization of the menstruation process, Hema seeks to empower women to be universally proud of the miracle nature provides the female form as it cycles through existence, and to share this recognition of power with other women in their lives as they see fit.
