Reel Conspiracies: The Fall of Communism As Seen In Gay Porn

September 19:
The Fall of Communism As Seen In Gay Porn
Dir. William E. Jones, 1999.

William E. Jones offers a fascinating critique of eastern Europe in the '90s, combining disturbing imagery with genuine insight. Jones compiles excerpts from gay porn but shows no genitalia, instead focusing instead on faces of performers smiling or frowning for the camera in a world saved by capitalism.

To reflect upon the Soviet revolution which promised a new world one hundred years ago, we are screening a series of films that consider a world lost, and a world possible, and a world now.

Accompanying this series we have prepared a highly recommended printed reader that ties together the works, available at the door for a suggested $3. All tickets $5.
