Chicago: Adorn playing in “Best Of CineKink”

Sat, Nov 23 2019 @21:00 - 22:30

Adorn proudly screens on the "Best Of CineKink" tour in Chicago. Animation, fiction, & musical short films — the best of the best.

 

“Best Of CineKink” in Chicago

 

A special evening of films that celebrate and explore a wide diversity of sexuality will screen as CineKink, “the kinky film festival,” hits Chicago for a hot, one-night stand!

 

 

“Adorn” and “What’s Your Policy On Orgasms?”

 

This year, we are proud that our short experimental erotic game film Adorn was selected to tour with CineKink all over the USA and Canada — so far including Oakland/SF, Chicago, Toronto, Los Angeles, Vegas, DC and Miami.

 

Adorn is an experimental erotic game directed by Jennifer Lyon Bell for Blue Artichoke Films, featuring brilliant music  by acclaimed folk-pop songwriter Zoe Boekbinder.

 

In Adorn, Sadie and Parker face each other naked; by the end they are mostly clothed and utterly exhausted. What’s in between is unique and completely improvised by the performers themselves. Restrained by the rules of their game, they create a love scene in reverse.

 

Our highly unusual film has screened at independent festivals, erotic festivals, and two dance festivals. (It’s not a dance movie — it’s 100% improvised in the moment — but it has a special dancelike quality that’s hard to explain until you se it!)

 

Plus, also selected for the tour is the documentary filmmaker Zoe D’Amaro’s charming short film “What’s Your Policy On Orgasms?”. “This  award-winning documentary features Jennifer’s work and shows “an intimate behind-the-scenes look of how she works with performers Sadie Lune and Parker Marx, and what it means to all of them.”
