Do it Yourself

It is worth exploring our own solosexuality, because we never know what the future will bring, and learning about our bodies and our own fantasies always brings good outcomes. But in this section, we do not focus just on solosexuality – the title also defines the way films are produced. Many artists deliberately position themselves in the areas of absolute creative independence, producing and distributing their projects with the help of the DIY idea. In this section, you’ll have a chance to see films made by the celebrities of the queer scene (Shine Luis Houston, Chelsea Poe), as well as interesting and promising newcomers (Paulina Pawłowska). Particularly noteworthy, in our opinion, is the film by Henrik Seidel – For me (alone) – an important voice and thorough analysis of the phenomenon of solosexuality – a voice that shouldn’t be overlooked.

Fucking Against Fascism (Black Milk Solo)

Fuck Yourself

Bea Blue
Germany 2022, 7’
In patriarchal history, female masturbation was seen as a threat to masculinity. Female pleasure was dedicated to men – exclusively and always. Bernadette Belu’s film was created as an attempt to encourage women to take care of their own pleasure without objectifying it.

Body Control

Paulina Pawlowska

A film examining the relationship between photography and the photographed body. Are there any spaces in modern society where we are not observed? And are there any tools, that would give us control over the images of our bodies?

The Emulated Struggle of the Adolescent Male

Marc Blackie

Marc Blackie’s surreal and often absurd style of Marc Blackie makes this film – seemingly attempting to talk about masturbation – appear as something completely different. But – as the artist claims – that’s exactly what it’s about.
