Endless Poetry

Alejandro Jodorowsky / 2017, Chile-France
128min / Digital

Through renowned father of the midnight movies Alejandro Jodorowsky’s intensely personal lens, Endless Poetry tells the story of his years spent as an aspiring poet in Chile in the 1940s. Against the wishes of his authoritarian father, the 20 year old Jodorowsky leaves home to pursue his dream of becoming a poet, and is introduced into the bohemian and artistic inner circle of Santiago where he meets Enrique Lihn, Stella Diaz Varín, Nicanor Parra, all unknown at the time, but who would later become driving forces of twentieth century Hispanic literature. Living with these inspirational artists, Jodorowsky’s exploration of his inner feelings takes him on a journey of sensual experimentation leading him to realize his innermost desires and passions. Continuing the autobiographical story he began in The Dance of Reality, Endless Poetry is an ode to the quest for beauty and inner truth, as a universal force capable of changing one’s life forever, written by a man who has dedicated his existence to creating spiritual and artistic awareness, told through Jodorowsky’s unique surreal and psychedelic visual language. In Spanish & French with English subtitles.

"Effortlessly moving as it is psychologically and artistically rich" The Film Stage

“A feast for the senses” The Hollywood Reporter

"Mr. Jodorowsky is a poet in the broadest sense, a restless artist whose temperament isn’t wedded to any particular form. He seems to embrace cinema out of convenience. He can’t beam his visions directly into your brain, or tattoo his words on your body, but this is the next best thing." New York Times

The Wild Search

The Wild Search

Presented by The Seattle Erotic Cinema Society + PinkLabel.TV
Shine Louise Houston /2017, USA
61 Minutes / Digital

2007 Feminist Porn Awards Winner, "Best Trans Sex Scene"
2008 Cinekink NYC Official Selection

*No one under 18 admitted* THE WILD SEARCH is a tour-de-force of queer women and genderqueer sex, the ultimate pomo-homo-porno. Hilariously staged as a documentary within a documentary, the film is director Shine Louise Houston’s answer to the age-old question: What do lesbians do in bed? The basic premise is clever and used to very funny effect. A documentary film crew follows around another documentary film crew as they attempt to film the mating habits of San Francisco lesbians. So THE WILD SEARCH is a (fake) documentary about a (fake) documentary about real (and perceived) lesbians… Follow all that? Imagine one of those National Geographic programs, with cameras watching lions from the distance, only instead of lions, they´re watching lesbians. The fundamental joke is that the people having sex don´t notice the camera crew in their apartment or in the bar, and there´s a really funny bit of business with a “decoy lesbian,” a mannequin dressed up and sent out to attract the natives. It´s a very funny mockumentary, but there´s nothing mock about the sex. Don´t miss it.

"Shine Louise Houston, who comes at her work from the perspective of a queer woman of color, says that 'The sex is the compelling story,' but nevertheless adds 'Showing different gender identities, sexual proclivities, different body types, skin colors — that's all on the agenda.'" - Nikko Snyder, Bitch Magazine

The Untamed

Amat Escalante / 2017, Mexico
100min / Digital

Young mother Alejandra is a working housewife, raising two boys with husband Angel in a small city. Her brother Fabian works as a nurse in a local hospital. Their provincial lives are upset with the arrival of mysterious Veronica. Sex and love can be fragile in certain regions where strong family values, hypocrisy, homophobia, and male chauvinism exist. Veronica convinces them that in the nearby woods, inside an isolated cabin, dwells something not of this world that could be the answer to all of their problems. Something whose force they cannot resist and with whom they must make peace or suffer its wrath. In Spanish with English subtitles.

"A sci-fi sexual drama that will blow your mind. Breathtaking filmmaking, sexy and profound..." Birth. Death. Movies.

"Once it wraps its tentacles around you, The Untamed doesn't let go -- and you might not want it to." Indiewire

"The Untamed does that very rare thing in cinema in that it blends mystery, horror and pseudo-reality with a kind of dark subconscious arousal." The Film Stage

Pop Aye

Kirsten Tan / 2017, Thailand-Singapore
101min / Digital

A successful Bangkok architect in the midst of a midlife crisis is reunited with an elephant he knew growing up. The two embark on a road trip to the man's childhood home in the idyllic Thai countryside. Along the way, they meet a colorful cast of characters that includes a pair of nonplussed local police officers, a forlorn transgender sex worker, and a mysteriously wise drifter. As the encounters mount and the bond between man and elephant deepens, filmmaker Kirsten Tan weaves a strikingly universal tale in this feature debut that won prizes (and hearts) at the Sundance and Rotterdam Film Festivals. In Thai with English subtitles.

"Unforgettable. Every character and relationship is imbued with a fascinating complexity." The Hollywood Reporter

“Writer-director Kirsten Tan has pulled off POP AYE with candor and laid-back aplomb. Warm yet unsentimental, graced with the lightest touch of surrealism.” Variety

“Like all road movies, POP AYE also journeys into the interior lives of its characters, a trip that is aided and abetted by other travelers... Each adds another detail, a splash of color and real warmth… (The elephant) is beautiful and heartbreaking.” New York Times
