Die Wiederentdeckung des antiken Pompejis brachte lauter Darstellungen kopulierender Paare zu Tage. Flugs entzog man die anstössigen Objekte den Augen der Öffentlichkeit, mauerte sie ein und subsumierte sie unter den Begriff Pornografie, den man eigens dafür prägte. Die Begriffsgeschichte deutet es an: Die Wissenschaften taten sich mit Pornografie schwer. Bis in die 1970er Jahre. Nun ist Porno mainstream – mal hip und chic, mal weniger.

MILFs und Blowjobs sind nur ein paar Klicks entfernt. Doch Pornografie hat tausend unterschiedliche Gesichter. Sie kann politisch, demaskierend oder feministisch sein und als individuelles Ausdrucksmittel dienen. Also sprechen wir auf dem Podium über den Forschungsstand zu Pornografie – und damit über ihre Geschichte, Ästhetik und Wirkung. Und Porny Days führt gleich ein paar Facetten von Porno vor – auf Video und live.

 

Mit: Tanzcompany TeKiTeKua und Dragqueen Evalyn Eatdith

Ellinor Lori (Porny Days), Desirée Waibel (Soziologin, Uni Bremen), Michael Pfister (Germanist, Philosoph und De Sade-Spezialist), Oliwia Blender (Literatur- und Theaterwissenschaftlerin, Freiburg)

Ninja Thyberg

Girls & Boys is a colour-bursting high school-comedy, in a world where gender-roles are reversed. Nour and Gry are two super horny geeks, who's highest wish is to lose their virginity. When Nour hears that Valentin, school's hottest boy, is going to Lo's party to find a rebound, she sees the opportunity of a lifetime. But how will the geeks get invited to the party? Girls & Boys is about the first encounter with the other sex, but it's also a film about betrayal, friendship and the desire to fit in. Watch the trailer here.

CH 2015, animat., 6 min

Driving at night in a city you don't know always felt otherworldly. You're watching everything pass you by but you're separated, removed from the outside world by a pane of glass, sealed in your own private reality. Time moves differently inside. You're able to observe and be observed by other drivers that pass but you're each just watching from inside your own tiny parallel universes. Watch trailer here.

PORNY KABAREET - Monday, 23rd January 2017

One-night-stand in Haifa, Israel

For the first time Porny Days will be held in Haifa on Monday, 23rd of January, at Kabareet, a bar and cultural venue off a four-lane industrial road, through an alley and down some stairs. Kabareet it the first cultural independent venue that has been established by a Palestinian youth collective. Kabareet hosts international and local artists and is a meeting point where they can express themselves freely. It is part of the new underground art and music movement in Palestine/Israel. Here’s the link to their Facebook event. Porny Kabareet is the first step of a cultural exchange starting between the two cities and communities.


The 75-minutes program consists of eight films, which were part of the Porny Days short film competition 2016. Amongst others, we will present the Porny Award winner: World Wide Woven Bodies by Truls Krane Meby (Norway), and the winner of the Special Mention Award: The 100 Blows by Gabrielle Lenhard (USA).

PoRNY AWARD 2016

Die Jury hat entschieden!

WORLD WIDE WOVEN BODIES

Truls Krane Meby

NOR 2015, Fiction, 15 min

 

Jury Satement:

We chose the winning film for its lighthearted humor, subtle and authentic depiction of the fragile phase between childhood and adulthood, and the loss of innocence. The film masterfully encapsulates a very specific moment in the history of technology and its impact on human life.

Special Mention:

THE 100 BLOWS

The 100 Blows by Gabrielle Lenhard


USA 2016, Experimental, 2min

 

Jury Statement:

We would like to give a special mention to The 100 Blows, by Gabrielle Lenhard, for its playful and fresh approach to the joy of giving blowjobs from a female perspective, breaking the stereotype of being a one sided pleasure. We would like to encourage sex positive people to go out and make films!

Jury: Jana Jakoubek (Fumetto), Stéphane Morey (La fête du Slip), Claus Matthes (Pornfilmfestival Berlin)
