Before home video became a household thing, porn was a theatrical experience. It was also the first real commercial format that LGBT filmmakers could employ to place their lives on screen. Dirty Looks is thrilled to return to NYC with Sesion Continua, our free-spooling 24-hour porn theatre program, including six rare 16mm print screenings pulled from the archive of porn preservationists, Vinegar Syndrome. Dirty Looks has assembled a free flowing program that queers and diversifies gay porn’s oft-limited lens of focus, while also paying homage to New York's 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.
