SECS Fest: Sex Works (Shorts Program)

September 8, 2018 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

SEX WORK Shorts Program
(66 min)

These shorts point both a documentary lens and create fictional narratives on these lives of sex workers. This program include works made by sex workers about the work they do.

Films in this shorts program include:

TOM X
Directed by Arthur Barrow
France, 2018 (15 min)
*USA Premiere*
Tom, an asocial camera operator on a porn set, has a hallucination while filming the female star – she’s alone sitting on a deserted beach. Obsessed by his vision, Tom will do everything he can to understand why the hallucination keeps happening.

THAT’S WHY I LIKE IT
Directed by Sydney Southam
Canada, 2018 (19 min)
A culmination of the filmmaker’s work as an artist, filmmaker, professional pole dancer and stripper, THAT’S WHY I LIKE IT, stems from the director’s own experience working in a strip club. Juxtaposing interviews with exotic dancers together with images of their twerking bodies, you’ll be hypnotized by this thought piece about consensual objectification.

DANNY WYLDE
Directed by Matthew Kaundart
USA, 2015 (3 min)
Inspired by an essay of former porn star, Danny Wylde, this film explores the darker, less talked about side of the porn industry.

FUNKY LOLA
Directed by Julio Mas Alcaraz
Spain, 2017 (15 min)
70 year-old Isabel lives alone in her small apartment. Her son, who is serving time in jail, has a pile of debt. Frustrated by the obstacles she comes across, Isabel makes a bold and surprising decision.

PIETY
Directed by Naya Pascual (aka “The Outdoor Cat”)
Spain/Germany, 2017 (14 min)
*USA Premiere*
Rodolfa and Maria Antonieta, two Latin sexworkers with a passion for spliffs and trap music, hang around an abandoned airport in Berlin. Things get interesting when their colleague Asuncion suddenly appears with the corpse of a dead client.
