Maria Beatty’s Erotic Noir

Posted by on Apr 20, 2018 in Monthly screening |

Tomorrow we will be showing two beautifully made erotic films from Venezuelan filmmaker Maria Beatty. Founder of Bleu Productions, her work explores lesbian sexuality and fetishism and we will be showing two film exploring BDSM and bondage, The Black Glove and Silken Sleeves.

In preparing for tomorrow’s event, SECS has stumbled upon a couple of very relevant videos. Before Maria Beatty invented the new genre “erotic noir”, she was photographing New York City musicians and performance artists. And in the early 1990s, she worked with Annie Sprinkle to create The Sluts & Goddesses Video Workshop, or How to be a Sex Goddess in 101 Easy Steps.

So we’re hold a SECS FEST 2018 Fundraiser. We are still short funds for renting the festival venue, acquiring the rights to the films in our archival program, advertising the festival, etc.

So these fantastic videos will be raffled on Saturday. Raffle tickets start at only $2.

You might also consider purchasing a SECS FEST lapel pin or stickers.

And memberships are only $50 and get you exclusive access to festival full series passes..
