Bloodmilk – Four Chambers (18:27)
A lust for the blood of another is a lust to merge bodies on deeper level. To be inside them, to penetrate and consume them beyond skin, beyond boundary. Desiring most the thing you shouldn’t desire. A deep insatiability for connection on a level surpassing physical and mortal limits. True surrender, to open and be opened in every possible way.

A modern take on classic French porn, a day of work at the girls’ garage. Lola Tormento goes to get her car fixed, but is it really her engine that is leaking?

Tapedeck – Lucio Massa (13:00)
A journey into forced isolation in the days of the Coronavirus pandemic. Three people tell their stories through a personal erotic and sensual vision. Anger, obsession and crepuscular eroticism as the only answer to an unacceptable life. Imprisonment and death. Will only imagination save us.
42 Dni/42 Days – Nat Portnoy (11:15)
Trigger warnings: terminal disease, disability, suicide.
The film, shot during the pandemic, focuses on a confrontation with a fear of a terminal disease while trying to process a complex, personal tragedy. The author takes the viewers onto a journey of different realizations regarding a difficult family relations, gender and sexual identity, migration and re-rooting. It reflects on the experience of queerness in a conservative Catholic setting, the ideas of survival, hope and love as well as the liberation from a feeling of guilt and shame. The author wonders what is it that determines who we really are and speculates whether it is possible to fully accept one’s fate.
A queer mystery is being solved by a post porn ritual where two beings will explore their non-binary self to overtake their fear.

Human Time – Thousand Faces (14:44)
Neen and James show extraordinary generosity through their incredible openness and freedom in front of the camera, giving us a widow into their sexual and emotional partnership, as well as their beautiful kink dynamic. Their knowledge of the technicalities and significance of Shibari / Kinbaku rope-play and it’s seamless integration into their passionate interplay creates a showcase of intricate vulnerability, concentration, and abandon.
Orgone Theory – Four Chambers (21:14)
Wilhelm Reich’s controversial ideas about the nature of God, sexuality and his association with communism meant that his work banned and his inventions and experiments destroyed. But the ideas persisted. Reich investigates the importance of sexuality for human life and its relevance in understanding society’s problems. We built an Orgone Accumulator in Berlin and we fucked in it. The accumulator is part science experiment, part esoteric fuck machine, part reverse glory hole.
Crash – Four Chambers (15:32)
Four Chambers homage to JG Ballard’s controversial text from 1973, Crash. Much like a car crash, this year has been, in many ways, an atrocity exhibition that we couldn’t look away from. Drawing our gaze closer and closer watching every horror unfold in shimmering pixels on our screens, every second, every minute distorted to stretching out endlessly repeated over days upon days spent inside.
Thomas Outside – Thomas Grundvold (09:34)
The short film is an erotic metaphor of the naked body in communication with nature. The Danish video artist and photographer Thomas / Grundvold uses his mobile phone and a photo camera to make videos that look like old paintings, presenting us his body like it was a piece of clay to mould sculptures from.
