London Porn Film Festival hosts UK premiere of Adorn

Fri, Apr 26 2019 @16:00 - 18:00

The new and radical London Porn Film Festival has invited Adorn to enjoy its UK premiere in a program of "glitchy, surreal and intelligent films."

Adorn premiere at London Porn Film Festival

 

Please join us for a premiere screening of Jennifer Lyon Bell’s new film Adorn (2018, Blue Artichoke Films) at the London Porn Film Festival.

 

 

The story: Adorn is a music-driven experimental erotic game. 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. Full of music by acclaimed queer folk-pop songwriter Zoe Boekbinder. Adorn challenges a traditional heteronormative approach to sex. For Sadie and Parker, navigating their new language of restraint, touch, and creative movement, all erotic connection is possible and nothing is assumed. Only desire and mutual trust guide them.

Featuring Sadie Lune and Parker Marx in their first-ever time on screen together.

 

Adorn in short film program “Yoghurt”

Adorn screens with 6 other short films in the “Yoghurt” short film program: “With a (soft) focus on the male body and gay desire, these glitchy, surreal and intelligent films give the viewer a nod and a wink before inviting them into a plush new world.”

London Porn Film Festival

The London Porn Film Festival’s Mission: “We value porn as an art form that is able to question and challenge the power structures that limit our sexual expression. Radical queer porn has not settled as an art form – it straddles the borders of visual art, performance art, erotica, political activism and many other genres – making it a unique vehicle for presenting new and radical ideas of sexuality. Beyond that, it can influence and re-shape our notions of politics and society. London Porn Film Festival exists as a place to re-learn our notion of porn; to explore, re-imagine, embrace and re-consider the boundaries of filmmaking itself – where sex and filmmaking meet without borders.”
