Freudian Lip

Stephen Chen


Canada / 8 mins
While researching and putting together BROADS WAY, Stephen Chen realized the treatment and characterization of homosexuals as mentally ill, pedophiles, molested as a child, etc. throughout history originated from a homophobic interpretation of Freud’s theories of infant and sexual development. These interpretations in turn formed the basis of homosexual stigmatization, punishment, and “cures” (such as Aversion therapy).  Upon digging deeper (pun intended) into Freud and his theories, Stephen found Freud did not share those interpretations of homosexuality. In fact, a 1935 letter written by Freud to a mother who sought treatment for her son’s apparent homosexuality, declared that homosexuality was neither an illness, nor a pathology. Although the letter was later passed on to Alfred Kinsey and reproduced in The American Journal of Psychiatry in 1951, homosexuality was still officially classified as a mental disorder in the APA’s (American Psychiatric Association) first Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-1) in 1952.  Taking the egregious Sid Davis’ BOYS BEWARE “social guidance” film as inspiration, Stephen Chen trolls both the film and homophobes by drawing upon and extending Freud’s theories to create a hilariously plausible explanation (that is internally consistent – pun intended) of homophobia in FREUDIAN LIP – a sassy social guidance film narrated by Freud himself.  No trailer...

Uma dor sufocada, uma realidade não demonstrada: é da invisibilidade que o grito ganha eco. Morrereis, mas destruirás as estruturas desse velho cis-tema. Chorarás, mas o teu sangue clamará por justiça. Tua existência não será perdida, ó mulher lascívia. Em um bar refletindo sobre um assédio que houvera sofrido em uma noite anterior, Madelena, mulher transexual, está tomando uma cerveja quando é abordada por um rapaz que a observava, chamado Edmilson. Ao rejeitar as investidas do moço, insatisfeito, Edmilson arrasta Madalena para um casarão antigo e a viola sexualmente. Madalena se torna a mulher Lascívia no momento em que deixa de ser uma mulher admirada, luxuosa, e se torna um corpo invadido. Uma mulher tão desejada e indesejada ao mesmo tempo. Um corpo que depois do prazer precisa ser eliminado para esconder a vergonha de quem o tocou.  Até quando se envergonharás de nossos corpos, mas se embriagarás da nossa carne? Lascívia é, antes de tudo, a vivência de muitas. É, acima de tudo, um ato político. Trata-se de corpos abjetos; do derramamento de sangue invisível; do extermínio de muitas travestis e mulheres transexual; da invasão ao corpo daquelas que são vistas como um ser fácil, acessível e que precisa ser eliminado. O curta grita para o mundo e denuncia a realidade que nunca fora demonstrada, que sempre fora apagada, mas que se torna presente em cada esquina, em nosso dia-a-dia.

In this era of globalized fitness culture through the use of social media, "looking healthy" matters much more than actually being healthy. Using endurance as the motivation for the performance, the video creates a new perception of HIV+ people as strong and resilient. Research references include the Atlas myth, the god of endurance that holds the earth and the skies over his shoulders, as well as the never ending climb of the Sisyphus myth.

Uprooting Ghosts: A Queer "Fantasia on National Themes"

Rafal Morusiewicz


Austria / 47'
This mash-up work of experimental re-searching unearths the frenetic, oppressive mood of political and social realities in 1952-1989 Poland and Hungary, through fragments of queer desire and the resistance of our very existence.

The work combines samples of banned and rare films Hands Up! (dir. Jerzy Skolimowski, 1982), How Far Away, How Near (dir. Tadeusz Konwicki, 1971), and Another View (dir. Karoly Makk and Janos Xantus, 1982) and more than a dozen other films, texts and tracks to create a passionate, suspicious tapestry of hauntings, dreams, fragments and provocations.
