CineKink: PDX makes its brazen appearance November 1-3, 2007, featuring a three-night run of films and videos that explore and celebrate a wide diversity of sexuality.
A touring version of "the really alternative film festival" held annually in New York, the event will be presented by CineKink, an organization dedicated to the recognition and encouragement of sex-positive and kink-friendly depictions in film and television. Works presented at CineKink: PDX will range from documentary to drama, mildly spicy to quite explicit - and everything in between.
Among the CineKink: PDX headliners, first up, on Thursday, November 1 at 7 PM, is "Vice and Consent," a documentary visit with such prominent, long-standing members of the BDSM community as Midori, Jay Wiseman and Cleo Dubois. Then, at 9 PM, "Webcam Girls" is a funny and engaging visit with four outspoken pioneers of the girlcam frontier.
On Friday, November 2 at 7:00 PM, it's "Power Plays," short works that probe, prod and play with the dynamics of sexual power and fantasy, followed at 9:00 PM by "Passion Plays," a collection of erotic, sometimes explicit pieces that dance along the supposed boundary of art, including the banned-in-Australia documentary, "Damon and Hunter." Rounding out the evening will be an 11:00 PM screening of "Pornology New York," a paean to the New York sexual underground, circa 1970-85, that brings together four of its most colorful protagonists.
On Saturday, November 3, at 7:00 PM, the drama "Going Under" traces the relationship of a married psychotherapist and a professional dominatrix he's been frequenting. And the festival wraps everything up at a 9:00 PM with a screening of the "Best of CineKink," a program of award-winning shorts deemed the best of the festival's most recent NYC appearance.
