This One+One Filmmakers Journal screening and roundtable, in association with the London Underground Film Festival, brings together a number of young film theorists to discuss new approaches to the study, reception and criticism of pornography. Advanced, discounted tickets are available for 3.50 GBP + booking fee from http://www.wegottickets.com/event/193736 or you can get tickets at the door for 5 GBP.
Screening and discussion starts promptly at 2pm. Please arrive early.
Due to the explicit nature of the material, this is an adult only event.
Our participants, which include legal scholars, bloggers and academics, offer vital and subversive ways of considering pornography’s central theoretical nodes like power, transgression, bodily integrity, intimacy and censorship. Moving beyond tired pro/anti debates which stymied intelligent debate in previous decades, our speakers confront pornography obliquely in all its problematic, perverse, and ubiquitous glory offering new coordinates for life in a pornified world.
