Carte Blanche to Quimera Rosa
We present to you a selection of 21 short films post-porn, from Latin America, Europe and North America. A rich array of non-normative sexualities, dissidents bodies that make evidence of an overactive imagination regarding the creation of DIY identities. This diversity echoes with those of the audiovisual genres used for these collective and without copyright creations. These videos have in common to articulate representations / sexual practices around the notion of a trans-feminist and post-identity cyborg. And we can tell you that is quite different than the sci-fi fantasy made in Hollywood and than mainstream porn. Finally, we want to thank Bandits-Mages and Emmetrop for having opened this space that, in addition to being an opportunity for showing non-standard videos, has generated the production of new works created especially for this occasion. A beautiful way to deconstruct the representation / production binomial.

Auteur : Anne Goldenberg, Héloïse Prax
Bodies, places and prosthesis are the operatory fields of the possibles. The frontiers harness each others, in rituals of insertions, sowing, soldering and deliverance. In the margin of the ubisoftian gentrification, ghosts wonder in the windows.

Nostalgia de vos

Sometime somewhere in a non heteronormative future world, oral pleasure among bio-women and bio-men will become so complex and disruptive that sex itself cannot be conceived without prosthetic intervention, in this case, this “cyborg blowjob” reflects anything we have in common with our innermost fear to recognize our own animality.

A journey into the woman cyborgs mind, taken through a self-inducted fantasy of the deconstruction of all forms. Codes are fragmented through action and new prosthetic mutations that reinvent pleasure. At this point a new sexuality is born, giving place to queer femininities.

Auteur : Mery Sut
This video was born of the collaboration with Sara Galán; from my fascination for the music, from her world, her history and the relationship with her instrument…, capable of tying her and make her free at the same time. This work is my own vision, so nearby as sometimes blind.

Porn Capitalism is for us a series of disorders : communication becomes merchandise, relationships become links for suspecting, monitoring, blackmailing and submission, human contact is a mere pretext, life becomes a void experience, desire becomes a synthetic drill and the request for being and participating becomes only achievable by the logic of bribery.
