SECS Fest Midwest presents highlights from the 2021 edition of SECS Fest, a sex-positive, international film festival celebrating the artistry of erotic cinema, focusing on work by feminist and queer filmmakers.

Featuring splashes of absurdist humor, unexpectedly creative relationships, and improvisational pleasures, there’s something for everyone here! The program concludes with the featurette Wild Card (Jennifer Lyon Bell, 2020), starring Bishop Black and Kali Sudhra.
