WAYS IN BEING GAY & CINEMATIC CESSPOOL PRESENT

Presented at:
Hallwalls

PURE PROTEIN! 8mm Gay male porn films presented by Stephen Kent Jusik

NYC small-gauge guru Stephen Kent Jusick descends on Buffalo with an assortment of (mostly) 8mm oddities and mundanities of gay male porn films from the golden years of. Back in the day, porn producers thought they were making sexually explicit art, and contributing to gay culture. So in addition to tracking down willing hunks, they would sometimes spend time on things like plot and set design or location, even camerawork! See Joe Dallesandro giving his all, Gordon Grant, Kip Noll, Al Parker and more bodies like you never see now (some kinda scrawny, some covered with hair), doing things censored from today’s sanitized video porn! And check out those fashions! Special multiple projection presentation, with live sound by NYC DJ Econ.
Bring your own 8mm porn (commercial or home made!) and add to the fun!
Pure Protein is a presentation of Hallwalls’ Cinematic Cesspool Film Series

Paintings and Drawings


Laylah Ali's work explores power dynamics and interpersonal conflict through compositions that position culturally, racially and sexually ambiguous figures in precarious, loaded, and unexpectedly humorous situations. Ali uses concise—even minimal—imagery that is specific in rendering and intent. While there are narratives in Ali's work, they are stories whose open spaces often give them the atmosphere of fables.
