MOTTA — Netherlands/United Kingdom — 2020 — 16'

Brazilian artist Fabio da Motta uses bondage and photography to question the boundaries between fantasy, power, provocation and art.

Daniel Sterlin-Altman

POTE DE BAISE — Canada — 2020 — 2'

Life in isolation is tasty, horny, and disappointing. A stop-motion visual sestina poem created in quarantine during the 2020 COVID-19 epidemic.

“Though he eschews nudity, Sterlin-Altman manages to create an erotic atmosphere of lust and yearning. We recommend the film for a little mediation of your own…with or without some nearby vegetation.” ~ (David Reddish, Queerty 2021)

NULLO — Germany — 2021 — 16'

„The subject of the documentary, an affable gay Austrian fellow named Norbert, sits or stands naked in various poses in his small apartment. It is clear that Norbert has no penis, and in its stead has had a winged penis tattooed above the space where it used to be. Norbert recounts his story matter-of-factly, relating how he was alienated from his penis from a young age, and what his ex-boyfriend, family and friends think of his decision to take matters into his own hands and remove it. Nullo* is a fascinating portrait of an individual with penis dysmorphia who appears to be much happier and content without the very appendage that provides many men – especially gay men – with their entire raison d’être.“ (Bruce LaBruce / Catalog text SixpackFilm)

*Nullo stands for genital nullification and refers to a subculture made up mostly of men whose genitals have often been removed from themselves.

Masha Godovannaya

ONLY TWO WORDS — Russia — 2018 — 10'

In the May of 2017, she came to St. Petersburg, Russia, to present a book – the first published Russian translations of her selected poems.

Leo Luna

HOLD ME TIGHT — Belgium/France — 2021 — 6'

In the heart of a dark forest, while hunting, two silhouettes meet. These creatures move like predators, they
attract and repel each other, seducing each other during an explosive parade. “Hold Me Tight” is a
flamboyant and bitter romance where the violent attraction of the characters puts them in danger.
