UN(DIS)SING OUR ABILITIES, featuring a Q&A with the curators and the filmmakers
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 Courtney Trouble, Seeley Quest, Patricia Berne, MOON RAY RA, Tobi Hill-Meyer and a 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+
