60 min.

PrEP je doneo sasvim novi način borbe protiv HIV-a. Iako u Sjedinjenim Državama ova pilula za prevenciju HIV-a pokazuje ogroman uspeh mnoge evropske zemlje i dalje oklevaju. Holandija je jedna od tih država. Prep&ME je prvu dugometražni dokumentarac o PrEP-u  u Holandiji. Tri učesnika u ovom eksperimentu pričaju iskreno o svojim iskustvima sa PrEP-om i njenom uticaju na njihov (seksualni) život. U ovom, na momente, duhovitom i emotivnom filmu sagledavamo pozitivne i negativne strane PrEP-a. Takođe čujemo i mišljenja stručnjaka. Da li je PrEP čudesna pilula ili pilula za žurke?

Tim Dekkers je karijeru započeo tokom osamdesetih godina prošlog veka kao reporter vodećih holandskih nacionalnih novina. Karijeru je , nakon toga, nastavio na nacionalnoj televiziji. Godinama je bio poznat kao vrhunski novinar koji se bavi domaćim i stranim temama. Nakon toga je bio dopisnik iz Australije za holandske, danske i belgijske medije. Poslednjih deset godina bavi se filmskom produkcijom.

PrEP is a game changer in the battle against HIV/Aids. The new hiv prevention pill is in the USA already a huge success, but many countries in Europe are hesitating. The Netherlands is one of those countries. In the documentary PrEP&ME, the first long documentary about PrEP in the Netherlands, three participants in an Amsterdam experiment with PrEP talk honestly about the hiv prevention pill and the effect of it on their (sex) life. In this sometimes funny and emotional documentary we see the good and bad things about PrEP. And we hear the opinions of experts. Is PrEP a miracle pill or a party pill?

Tim Dekkers started in the eighties as a reporter for the Dutch national newspaper Trouw. He switched in 1988 to national televison. For many years, he was a well known and respected journalist, dealing with domestic and foreign topics. From 2005 till 2010 he was a freelance correspondent in Sydney, Australia. He worked for Dutch, Belgian and Danish media. The last decade, Dekkers was owner of his Media Office Onderste-Boven. He made many video productions.

Kvirkor: Kako pankovati revoluciju
Režija: Yony Leyser
Nemačka, SAD, 2017.
Dokumentarac
83 min.

Šta se dešava kada društvo koje postoji nije i ono koje vam je potrebno? Neprekidno ponavljate kako to društvo postoji, pravite fanzine koji će stvoriti pank kvir revolucionare, snimajte subverzivne filmove i distribuirajte ih na sve strane i vremenom će zajednica koju ste stvorili postati i globalna realnost. Upravo o ovome govori „Queercore“. U pitanju je priča koja nas vodi od samih početaka pseudo-pokreta sredinom osamdesetih, stvorenom da „pankerizuje“ pank scenu, sve do širokog spektra umetnika koji su koristili radikalni kvir identitet kako bi uzvratili udarac, istovremeno, i gej asimilaciji i homofobiji pank kulture. Ispitanici diskutuju o homofobiji, rodu, feminizmu, HIV-u, asimilaciji, seksu i, naravno, umetnosti. Na širokoj listi sagovornika nalaze se i Bruce LaBruce, G.B. Jones, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, John Waters, Justin Vivian Bond, Lynn Breedlove, Silas Howard, Pansy Division, Penny Arcade, Kathleen Hanna, Kim Gordon, Deke Elash, Tom Jennings, Team Dresch kao i mnogi drugi.

Yony Leyser rođen je 1984. godine. Odrastao je u Čikagu gde je studirao pisanje, snimanje filmova i dramaturgiju. Nejgovi radovi se bave rasnim i rodnim identitetima kao i pop-kulturom i devijantnim ponašanjima kroz istoriju. Filmovi su mu prikazivani na više od 150 filmskih festivala širom sveta, kao i na televiziji i u umetničkim školama. Dela su mu pozitivno su ocenjena u brojnim mejnstrim medijima. Njegov prvi dugometražni film bio je o piscu Williamu S. Burroughsu i prikazan je na „Merlinka Festivalu“, a u toku karijere ispred njegove kamere našli su se i Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, John Waters i Sonic Youth. Njegov novi film „Queercore“ fokusira se na priču o fenomenu gej pank pokreta.

Film će najaviti kanadski reditelj Bruce LaBruce koji je jedan od sagovornika u filmu.

Queercore: How to Punk a Revolution
Director: Yony Leyser
Germany, USA, 2017
Documentary
83 min

What happens when the community you need is not the community you have? Tell yourself it exists over and over, make fan zines that fabricate hordes of queer punk revolutionaries, create subversive movies, and distribute those movies widely—and slowly, the community you’ve fabricated might become a real and radical heartbeat that spreads internationally. This is the story that Queercore tells, from the start of a pseudo-movement in the mid-1980s, intended to punk the punk scene, to the widespread rise of artists who used radical queer identity to push back equally against gay assimilation and homophobic punk culture. Interviewees discuss homophobia, gender, feminism, AIDS, assimilation, sex, and, of course, art. The extensive participant list includes Bruce LaBruce, G.B. Jones, Genesis Breyer P-Orridge, John Waters, Justin Vivian Bond, Lynn Breedlove, Silas Howard, Pansy Division, Penny Arcade, Kathleen Hanna, Kim Gordon, Deke Elash, Tom Jennings, Team Dresch, and many more.

Yony Leyser (B. 1984) grew up in Chicago. He studied writing, filmmaking and the dramatic arts in High School and at University. His work deals with race, gender identity, pop-culture and deviant social histories. His feature films have been shown collectively in over 150 film festivals; theatrically and on TV throughout the world; as well as at some of the world’s most recognized art institutions. He has received critical acclaim in publications including The New York Times, Der Spiegel, Le Monde, Sight and Sound Magazine, and Haaretz. He finished his first feature-length film William S. Burroughs: A Man Within by the age of 24. Traveling with just a camera and backpack he managed to include many personalities in the comprehensive documentary including Iggy Pop, Patti Smith, John Waters and Sonic Youth. It was released to huge international acclaim in 2010.

“Mizandristkinje” je priča o tajnoj feminističkoj terorističkoj organizaciji koja ima cilj da oslobodi žene, uništi patrijarhat, i uspostavi novi feministički svetski poredak. Ovu organizaciju vodi Velika Mama koja je upravnica seoskog prihvatilišta za napuštene devojke koji služi kao fasada iza koje se krije teroristička organizacija. Kada mladi radikalni levičar bežeći od policije završi u ovom ženskom uporištu jedna devojka ga iz sažaljenja sakriva u podrumu ustanove. Njegovo prisustvo narušava ustaljen život i, kako film kreće ka vrhuncu, otkriva brojne skrivene tajne. Otkrivamo novi stil lezbijske pornografije kao oruđa u propagandnom ratu, ali i kao svojevrsnu pozivnicu za novu vrstu ženske revolucije.

Bruce LaBruce je međunarodno priznati filmski stvaralac, fotograf, scenarista i umetnik iz Toronta.

The Misandrists
Director:
Bruce La Bruce
Writer: Bruce La Bruce (screenplay)
Cast: Susanne Sachße, Viva Ruiz, Kembra Pfahler
Germany, Canada, 2017

The Misandrists refers to a secret cell of feminist terrorists that is planning to liberate women, overthrow the patriarchy, and usher in a new female world order. The group is led by Big Mother, who operates a school for wayward girls in the countryside as a front for a radical terroristic cell. When a young man, a radical leftist, who is running from the police, happens upon this remote female stronghold, one of the girls takes pity on him and hides him in the basement. His presence eventually disrupts the household and reveals a number of unexpected secrets, as the film moves towards its climax: the revelation of a new style of lesbian porn that is to be used as both propaganda  tool and calling card for their new brand of female revolution.

Bruce LaBruce is an internationally acclaimed filmmaker, photographer, writer, and artist based in Toronto. Along with a number of short films, he has written and directed nine feature films, including his most recent, Gerontophilia, which won the Grand Prix at the Festival du Nouveau Cinema in Montreal in 2013, and Pierrot Lunaire, which won the Teddy Award Special Jury Prize at the Berlinale in 2014.

Tom od Finske
Režija:
Dome Karukoski
Uloge: Jakob Oftebro, Werner Daehn, Lauri Tilkanen
Finska, 2017.
116 min.

Touko Laaksonen je odlikovani oficir koji se posle herojske i potresne odbrane domovine u Drugom svetskom ratu konačno vraća kući samo da bi otkrio kako ni život u miru nije nimalo manje uzbudljiv. Uočava kako u mirnodopskom Helsinkiju buja progon homoseksualaca, kao i pritisak na gej muškarce da se ožene i imaju decu. Touko pronalazi utočište u svojoj slobodnoj umetnosti usavršavajući se u homoerotskim ilustracijama nagih muškaraca nesputanih nagona. Njegov rad poznat po čuvenom potpisu „Tom of Finland“ postao je simbol jedne generacije homoseksualaca i podstakao plamen gej revolucije.

Dome Karukoski je rođen na Kipru. Majka mu je bila finska novinarka, a otac američki glumac i pesnik. Porodica se preselila u Finsku kada je Karukoskom bilo svega pet godina. Smatra se jednim od najuspešnijih filmskih režisera u Finskoj sa preko trideset festivalskih priznanja i šest igranih filmova koji su postali blokbasteri u domovini, dok su u inostranstvu su zadobili veliku pažnju filmske publike.

Touko Laaksonen, a decorated officer, returns home after a harrowing and heroic experience serving his country in World War II, but life in Finland during peacetime proves equally distressing. He finds peace-time Helsinki rampant with persecution of the homosexual men around him, even being pressured to marry women and have children. Touko finds refuge in his liberating art, specializing in homoerotic drawings of muscular men, free of inhibitions. His work – made famous by his signature ‘Tom of Finland’ – became the emblem of a generation of men and fanned the flames of a gay revolution.

One of Finland’s most highly acclaimed directors, Dome Karukoski has been named one of “Variety’s” top 10 Directors to Watch. His features include BEAUTY AND THE BASTARD, HOME OF THE DARK BUTTERFLIES, FORBIDDEN FRUIT, LAPLAND ODYSSEY, HEART OF A LION and THE GRUMP, the latter three of which had their premieres at Toronto IFF. His latest film Tom of Finland was selected as part of the 2017 edition of Tribeca FF and Helsinki IFF.

Robin Campillo je rođen u Maroku 1962. godine. Otac mu je bio vojno lice zbog čega se tokom njegovog odrastanja cela porodica neprekidno selila. U bioskopu vojne baze na Madagaskaru devetogodišnji Campillo je gledajući „Alphaville“ otkrio Godara. Zbog ovoga je razvio strasnu ljubav prema filmu. Nakon završene filmske škole napušta rad na filmu kako bi se posvetio borbi protiv HIV-a. Tek sredinom devedesetih započinje karijeru scenariste i režisera. Iako je bio favorit koji je u Kanu rasplakao čuvenog Pedra Almodovara film „120 Beats per Minute“ nije dobio „Zlatnu palmu“ već samo „Gran pri“ festivala.

Nathan is a young man who joins an AIDS activist group in 1990s Paris. As he attends the weekly meetings, he learns that some members prefer a more radical approach to their protests.

Robin Campillo was born in Morocco in 1962. Because his father was in the army, he and his family moved around a great deal during his childhood and part of his adolescence. During this period, movies became a main theme of his existence. In Madagascar, at the age of 9, he discovered Godard’s Alphaville in a military theatre where the film was booed. Following this experience, he developed a passionate interest in cinema and an array of filmmakers ranging from Jacques Demy to Mario Bava. In 1983 he enrolled in the IDHEC (Institute for Advanced Cinema Studies) film school. After graduating, however, he took a break from his film career to dedicate his time to the fight against AIDS. Finally, in the mid-1990s, he began a long and fruitful collaboration with Laurent Cantet as co- screenwriter and editor. In 2004 Robin Campillo directed his first feature film THEY CAME BACK. His film BPM (BEATS PER MINUTE) was very well-received in competition at the 70th Cannes Film Festival, 2017.
