Rara

Pepa San Martin, 2016, DCP, ov es st ang fr & nl, 88'

Sara is 13 years old and, with her younger sister Catalina, lives in an accomplice universe with mother and her female partner. Her father does not approve of the situation. He would like his daughters to have a "normal" family life and thus attempts to "get them back". But Sara has other worries, between her first love and her body, which is going through puberty... This film is fresh and full of allusions to daily life with gay parents; the film also evokes the absurdities of legislation, the normative social pressure and the uncertainties of adolescence. Beautifully interpreted, Rara is a funny and moving film, a great film not to be missed.

Strange Love

Natasha Mendonca, 2016, video, ov st fr & ang, 70'

In the vast Mumbai metropolis, hybrid images flash by as if they were free jazz. Two protagonists, whose lives interconnect, serve as our guides: the eccentric singer Suman who recounts the plight of Indian women through punk rock, slam poetry and jazz; and the transman Khush, a rickshaw driver who dreams of transforming his female body into a muscular Bollywood-style one. The search for identity, happiness and love, Natasha Mendonca’s contemporary portrait of male-female relationships and alternative lifestyles in India is unique, strange, original and particularly provocative. A real discovery!

Blush

Michal Vinik, 2015, DCP, ov st fr & ang, 85'

That Naama’s family is dysfunctional, is the least one can say. Her father is openly racist, her mother suffers from depression, and her sister who signed up to the army suddenly disappears. Her favourite pleasures are going out, drinking, taking drugs - in short having a good time. The arrival of Dana, a new pupil in her school, with whom she falls madly in love, opens up unexpected perspectives and gives a new meaning to her life.... This is the first film from a young female director on a coming-of-age, largely influenced by the political situation in Israel and the tensions of the Palestine conflict.

We had the opportunity to discover the director in ’Dirty Diaries’ or through her clips for ’The Knife’. Her first feature film (openly porn) however plays with the codes and undertones defining the genre. At the same time both sexy and nostalgic, this film was shot in alternative locations in Berlin (squats and sex clubs), the appropriate backdrop for hardcore scenes. It is also a love story playing on intimacy and sense of community, as it reveals what goes on ’behind the scenes’. A queer, lesbian and... romantic porn?

Barbara Hammer’s last opus is a portrait-hommage of famous poet Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979), constructed around the places where she lived and wrote (USA, Canada, Brazil) and around her love affairs. The locations, both landscapes and buildings, are building blocks and carriers of memory. Supported by them, by encounters and by the intimate writings of Elizabeth Bishop, we discover the lesser known facets of this leading poet. A stunning, impressionist and instructive visual and auditory experience.

In New York City, LGBTQ youth of colour gather together out on Christopher Street Pier, practicing Ballroom, a performance based art form.
Twenty five years after "Paris is Burning", a very new and different generation of LGBTQ youth have formed an artistic and activist subculture, the Kiki scene. The movie follows 7 powerful and unique characters from the Kiki Community over the course of 4 years, using their flamboyant performances at events named Kiki Balls. Those balls offer the performers a safe and empowered environment which enables them to enact various modes of gender expression and which differs a lot from the world from where they originate, one marked by homelessness, illness en prejudice. Through their spectacular performances they obtain greater political influence by affirming gender expression. A must see!

Girls lost

Three young girls, subjected to the sexual and lesbophobic harassment of their peers, discover a mysterious black plant with a sap which tastes of vanilla and allows them to become male during some nocturnal escapades. But this game, through the questioning of relations and identities, allows them to discover more about themselves than they ever imagined. The director of the now classic "Kiss me" returns with a touching film, jubilantly confusing genders and visually stimulating, with shades of both the social and the fantastical. The seductive soundtrack is a definite bonus.

Queering and sexing the city! One-night stands, fellatio, masturbation, sodomy... A group of friends recreate porn films by shooting in construction sites, empty apartments, quarries... as a reaction to a major real-estate speculation project in the heart of Brazil. Scenes of high erotic tension alternate with moments of total burlesque or political reflection. A quest for freedom, solidarity and pleasure, this film is raw, political as well as poetic and will leave no one indifferent. Fuck the construction!

Can one combine militancy with directing porn? According to which criteria? For what purpose? Based on what (supporting networks? accessible tools?& ) But why attempt this in the first place? And more specifically, what difference does it make in the end? The discussion (in English and French) will opened and chaired by Muriel Andrin (ULB) in collaboration with the GSARA asbl as part of its campaign ’WEPORN’.

"I, Lakshmi Ma, want to talk to you about Hijras, because I am one of them ... We are born neither male nor female, we are born somewhere in the middle." So says the guru that accompanies us as she talks about her community in general, and in particular about the few people who live under his/her wing, Trisha, Priyanka and others, including Silky, the central figure of this film. With the Hijras rather than about the Hijras, this beautiful documentary creates a poem of many voices where the world is a playground in which the third gender is above all a force of resistance in a shared life.

Petr Kazda, Tomas Weinreb, 2016, DCP, ov st fr & ang, 106'

I, Olga Hepnarová, victim of your bestiality, sentence you to death.’ Olga was the last woman to be executed in Czechoslovakia after an incident that marked the spirit of the 70’s. This film neither trivializes nor glorifies this act but it allows us to discover a woman subjected to social silence and her rebellion against the stifling norms and straight-jacketing of a society used to banning those who are different. Dark, strange and troubling, like when she goes topless to seduce a lover in a cafe that is anything but gay-friendly. Olga speaks as well as haunts us today, and will do so for a long time.

Sex, drugs & skateboards. Two skating ’friends with benefits’ discover a chaotic Mexico City with their band, while exploring their sexuality with passion, enthusiasm, and complete freedom. Selling their blood is an easy way for them to make money since the "narcos" do not have access to hospitals and are eager to buy it. Their business seems lucrative but soon turns into a nightmare. With unrefined and energetic charm, this film explores the exuberance of youth mixed with film noir suspense. As much a raw and realistic depiction of Mexico, as an ode to freedom, love, and friendship.

Two boys, one girl. All 3 are in the same high school in Udine in Italy. Lorenzo (who resembles a young Keanu Reeves) has just moved into town. He is gay, exuberant and an excellent student. The very opposite of Antonio, taciturn, sporty, living in the shadow of his dead elder brother. And finally, there is Blu, the rebellious daughter of a well-off couple. They form a cohesive trio facing the hostility of other students. This very pleasant, partly serious, often easygoing, revealing, poetic film, interspersed with several deliciously kitsch musical interludes in the style of a transalpine Jacques Demy, is the first production of the screenwriter of the excellent comedy "Mine Vaganti" (Loose Cannons) by Ferzan Özpetek.
