Champion

In conjunction with UB's Humanities Institute Research Workshop for Queer Theory, hosts of the conference "At the Limits: Porn and the Humanities" (March 26th&27th), Hallwalls will present Bay Area director Shine Louise Houston's latest film Champion. Heralded by The Advocate as "Dyke Porn's New Mastermind," Houston will screen her latest film Champion, winner of the Feminist Porn Awards 2009 Movie of the Year and nominated for the 2010 AVN Awards Best Video Feature (the Oscar of Porn).

About Champion
Jessie Eaton (Syd Blakovich) is a hotshot jock who can't let go of her ex-girlfriend, Cathy Summers (Jiz Lee) while making her way into women's professional Mixed Martial Arts boxing. Her plans hit a snag when a run in with an old nemesis, Bobby Malone (Javier) blocks her way to the top. To save her career she must throw the match that would surely be her ticket into the professional arena. Even trickier is her attraction to the women she is suppose to beat, Violet Vahn (Dallas) who is Jessie's toughest opponent inside and outside the ring. It's a big lesson in humility and integrity for Jessie as she juggles her relationships and her career. Will she win or will she lose? What does winning and losing mean?

Laylah Ali
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.
