Description:

Queer- feminist porn filmmaker Marit Östberg and experimental filmmaker and artist Liz Rosenfeld have created an intensive course regarding relationships of sex/sexuality on film and in production.

We will be dealing with questions stemming from subjects such as sex and empowerment, consent, the sexual politics of bodies on film, while searching for and discussing what feminist and queer methodologies in porn, erotic cinema, and various sexual imagery on film can be. Together with students we will talk about issues such as how to create safe space, the politics of sexual authenticity, sex workers rights, activism, self care and negotiation from the perspective of both filmmaker, director and crew. Together we will engage in readings, discussion and various production exercises exploring what representation of sex on film is and can be. Marit and Liz will also talk about their own experiences of producing sexuality explicit film work, and their own methods of creating this work from queer and feminist political perspectives.

This course is a safe and supportive space for people of all genders, and identifications. Students should be prepared to engage with sexually explicit examples of film and literature.
