Amin Maher (Islamic Republic of Iran, 2019)
20 mins

A son pushes at the bounds of his relationship with his mother as he unpicks the psychological consequences of the childhood sexual abuse he suffered.

The film explores gender confusion, sexuality, guilt, fantasy and repression in relation with violence and identity. “Letter to my Mother” is a means for survival, a way to stand and speak up and to understand. It is an attempt to break taboos and push boundaries – both social and personal, and to create life and art out of the darkest experiences. There are times when cinema itself seems implicated in this difficult story, charting abuse that began at the exact time he was appearing in Abbas Kiarostami’s Ten (2002) which featured the real-life relationship between his mother and Amin.

PISS OFF (20)
Henry Baker (United States, 2019)
20 mins

Piss Off explores a long-practiced erotic fetish from the point of view of a gay millennial who expresses it as performance art. Known online as “Athleticpisspig,” he uses video and internet to demonstrate and perform “water sports” or piss play with other gay men in various ways. He travels the world to act out this activity, in public and semi-public spaces, with individuals or groups, to examine and break social norms–to create “art” from shared piss play – a fetish which is a “closet within the gay closet.” Followed by more than 80,000 subscribers, Athleticpisspig’s work will elicit many judgments–from degrading and decadent to arousing and celebratory. It’s certainly defiant and challenges the viewer to re-think the human nature behind the shadowy world of erotic fetishes. And the old question—since ancient Greece, through the Renaissance to burlesque, Eakins, Manet and Mapplethorpe—is it mere pornography or groundbreaking art worthy of consideration and criticism? The film poses these questions which viewers must answer for themselves. Read more

SWEET LOVE
Stephen Crompton (United States, 2016)
20 mins

“I was thinking of writing something totally absurd; to take the genre of softcore porn, and merge it with the concept of the Theatre of the Absurd” – Alvin Bojar

Alvin Bojar, a retired entertainment producer, now lives in Sun City Center, Florida, which is one of the state’s many so-called “active living” communities for persons over-55. Alvin sees his current home as a sort of “heaven’s waiting room”, but his sense of humour endures. From the confines of this retirement dreamscape, Alvin recounts his experiences, from more than forty years earlier, of writing and producing a bizarre softcore porn film called Fongaluli. As Alvin recalls the intent and circumstances surrounding this truly surreal production, Sweet Love ponders the parallel absurdity of life in heaven’s waiting room. Read more
