2 OR 3 THINGS I LIKE ABOUT HIM
Germany/ 2021 / 15 min
Directed by: Paul Stümke, Billy Vega, Jamal Phoenix
“2 or 3 things I like about him” is an attempt to create a subjective gaze at a professional porn set. Contrasting the proximal POVs of performers Jamal Phoenix and Billy Vega with an at times tableau-vivant-like outside perspective, it oscillates between intimacy and distance.
Director Biography – feuer.zeug
feuer.zeug is a project from Freiburg, Germany. Their first film RETOUR takes the classical porn motive of meeting someone while hitchhiking but turns it around and interprets it in a newway. Their second film SEESEITEN/SIDE OF A LAKE is dedicated to the topic of masturbation, and the third one, 2 OR 3 THINGS I LIKE ABOUT HIM deals with different perspective while watching porn. The group does not only want to produce fair and feminist pornography, they are also aiming for a broader public discussion on the representation of sexualities. Hench, they are organizing talks and discussion evenings to bring the topic into the public sphere.
