Dirty Looks returns with our annual 24-hour porn theatre – Sesión Continua! This year boasts the largest collection of 16mm hardcore screened in Los Angeles since the late 1980s – with over 7-hours of classic homophile celluloid presented in its original exhibition format.
Before home video became a household thing, porn was a theatrical experience. It was also the first commercial way for LGBT filmmakers to place their lives on screen. Including six rare 16mm prints (among them a lost film) pulled from the archive of porn preservationists, Vinegar Syndrome, Dirty Looks has assembled a free flowing program that diversifies gay porn’s oft-limited lens of focus, while also paying homage to Los Angeles’ distinct role in porn and underground film production.
From midnight Friday through midnight Saturday, Dirty Looks will screen rare and classic works of gay, lesbian and bisexual erotica in “sesión continua”-style: no schedules, no set attendance times. Slip in and out or stay a while, come together to witness a public approach towards explicit cinema that blended avant-garde film forms with titillating, haunting, and forbidden erotic imagery.
