Periwinkle Cinema (san Francisco) presents the East Coast premiere of Un(dis)sing Our Abilities at the New York Mix Experimental Film Festival MIX NYC
UN(DIS)SING OUR ABILITIES, featuring a Q&A with the curators and participating artists and filmmakers (ASL interpreted). All films are captioned.
Un(dis)sing Our Abilities is an experimental sexplicit short movie showcase presented by Periwinkle Cinema that explores sensuality, intimacy, safety and consent through the lens of the less-represented. Curated by Lisa Ganser and Lorin Murphy, this screening implores the erotic pleasure and sexual abilities of those of us dissed, dismissed, (mis)labeled, disabled and generally passed over in mainstream queer crowds. Redefine sexy through sex and sensuality that is healing, empowering and arousing. You'll get turned on by fat, crip, and porn, challenge and subvert your notions of gender, sexuality and self, while exposing what it means to "work with what we got (or not)." Experience images of the sexually empowered within our own very different, and always changing bodies. We tell our stories on film and come together to experience each other's in the dark, then see each other in a new way when the lights come up. This screening includes short films by Mars/Mar Rosas, Mihee-Nathalie Lemoine, Lorin Murphy, , Courtney Trouble featuring Jiz Lee and Lyric Seal, Crystal Mason, seeley quest, Patricia Berne, MOON RAY RA, Tobi Hill-Meyer, Todd Herman featuring Leroy Moore and the brand new short movie "Wall of Fire" by and featuring Nomy Lamm and Lisa Ganser. Wall of Fire was completely underwritten and fully funded by the Smitten Kitten. The curators and filmmakers will be in person to present the showcase and for a brief Q & A. 18+ This shorts movie showcase is captioned for HoH/deaf. we encourage BYOC (bring your own chair) so that your body is comfortable. please refrain from wearing scents. we will post more accessibility info about the venue as we learn it. please let us know if you have any specific accessibility questions or requests. thank you! more accessibility = more sexxxy
