As constraints on representing sexuality were loosened for mainstream films in the late ‘60s (a la Midnight Cowboy, A Clockwork Orange), so were the shackles around experimental artists, who were finally freed to fearlessly explore alternate views on the love act. The filmmakers selected for tonight’s shorts comp — including luminaries like Gunvor Nelson, Constance Beeson, Paul Sherits, and animators like Vince Collins — employed a myriad of styles, from strobic overstimulation (Peace Mandala) and haunting meditations on the human form (The Operation), to freaked-out comics of morphing genetalia (Desire Pie).

Artcore: The Films Of Stephen Sayadian, Night #2 ("Nightdreams")

“[Its] trailer [proclaims] that ‘Nightdreams’ is mesmerizing, dazzling, outrageous, insane, riveting, hysterical, surreal, outlandish, mysterious, relentless, magnetic, erotic, indecent, flaming, steaming, disturbing, monstrous, kinetic, sweeping, ethereal, mind-boggling and shattering. I cannot say that each one of those descriptors doesn’t fit ‘Nightdreams’ at some point during its runtime.” — Goregirls’ Dungeon

For fans of anthropomorphized, tap-dancing, saxophone-playing pieces of toast! A sexual hallucination from the Fourth Dimension, this unbelievably unique adult film from 1981 is a cross between the crazed universe of John Waters, the gonzo kitsch of Forbidden Zone and the pioneering spirit of the early MTV aesthetic. Our Sexperiments weekend’s resident professor Stephen Sayadian (director of Café Flesh) co-wrote and produced Nightdreams after years of working for Larry Flynt’s Hustler empire, and while he was enjoying a successful career designing the poster art for era-defining films like Body Double, so that should give you some idea as to the boundary-less imagination on display. The film finds a duo of sex researchers (a la Masters and Johnson) probing the innermost erotic fantasies of a wild-child nymphette, as vignettes depicting her fantasy-laden dream states fly by. We’re talking carnal visits from a man-sized Cream of Wheat box, to a horny, Tim Burton-esque jack-in-the-box, to a lesbian cowgirl encounter awash with the thick synth stylings of early-era Wall of Voodoo. There’s only one Nightdreams.
Dir. Francis Delia, 1981, 35mm, 78 min.

Artcore: The Films Of Stephen Sayadian, Night #1 ("Cafe Flesh", Stephen Sayadian & Jerry Stahl in person!)

“Stephen Sayadian is a born provocateur. A gregarious storyteller. A genre unto himself. The genre he created, dominated and left behind could best be described as surrealist nightmare art-porn. But funny. With his twin early-’80s epics Nightdreams and Café Flesh created under the pseudonym “Rinse Dream”, Sayadian lifted from experimental theatre (where he has also worked extensively), silent cinema and absurdist comedy to create X-rated films that are hallucinations that stick with you.” (Twitch Film) We’re very proud to welcome Stephen in-person for a boffo night of conversation spanning his entire career, from his earliest days as a creative director in the Hustler Magazine empire, to artist behind some of the most iconic ‘80s movie poster art (Dressed To Kill, Body Double), to visionary maker of the most unusual adult cinema ever lensed in 35mm. Then, it’s time for Café Flesh, Sayadian’s slice of nightmarish, New Wave sci-fi avant-gardism set in a post-apocalyptic, post-sex society — one where the last remaining erotic creatures are made to display their prowess in a seedy, insane cabaret that mixes early music video aesthetics, Dada and dong-age to stunning effect. Tonight’s other special guest is Jerry Stahl (“Permanent Midnight”), the film’s co-writer!

Sexperiments: A Collection of Turned-On Shorts (feat. "Christmas On Earth" w/ live score by White Rainbow!

7/25/2014 - 8PM

As constraints on representing sexuality were loosened for mainstream films starting in the late ‘60s (a la Midnight Cowboy, A Clockwork Orange), so were the shackles around experimental artists, who were finally freed to fearlessly explore and blow minds with alternate views on the love act (or “amourous congress”, as they used to say in olden times.) The filmmakers selected for tonight’s shorts compilation — including luminaries like Gunvor Nelson, Constance Beeson, Paul Sherits, and animators like Vince Collins — employed a myriad of styles, from strobic overstimulation (Peace Mandala) and haunting meditations on the human form (The Operation), to freaked-out comics of morphing genetalia (Desire Pie). Tonight’s centerpiece film even comes complete with a live score! Filmmaker Barbara Rubin was a 20-year-old denzien of Warhol’s Factory, and along with being credited as discovering the Velvet Underground, she also made Christmas On Earth, in which participants in the experiment donned tribal body paint as they proceeded to explore each other every which way but loose. The film’s “screenings” were often at friends’ apartments, with musical accompaniment ranging from turning the radio dial to the Velvets playing live. We’re pleased to announce Portland, OR’s prolific White Rainbow will be supplying tonight’s accompanying soundscape to this carnal free-for-all of fingerpainting and fingerbanging.
