Cinema Conversación #4 - Lily Scherlis, Nora Smith, Anna-Lea Schmitt
11 Jan 2019
SomoS Art House presents Nicky Miller’s Porn Warriors (2018) and Oh!Socks! (2015) as the first installment of its renewed Cinema Conversación program. Brace yourselves for a night full of queer desire, carnal pleasures, and artistic pornography.
Cinema Conversación aims to bring the audience in direct dialogue with artists and filmmakers, thus creating a platform where thoughts and experiences can be shared freely and where the usual separation between spectator and artist is lifted. The program series deliberately focuses on LGBTQ* experiences and aims to facilitate an ongoing discussion about feelings, desires, issues, goals, and social, political, and artistic positions of LGBTQ* individuals and communities. Besides the thematic focus, Cinema Conversación is also a platform to challenge and question the rigid boundaries of film and cinema, to expand on the idea of what the cinematic arts could mean, and to experiment with the wide range of genres and artistic practices involved in moving image-based productions. For this first event, Cinema Conversación features Nicky Miller’s Porn Warriors and Oh!Socks!.
“If there is a war it has to be porn!”
In this piece Nicky Miller explores queer sexuality and sexual energies in a war mindset. What can set us free? A true glorification of queer sex.
OH! SOCKS! is a flux of images transporting the audience inside the mind of a guy who has fantasies about other guys. The main character takes the audience on an ambiguous trip combining daily situations and phantasmagorical spaces.
