Un Chant D’amour | Jean Genet 1950 | 26 minutes

Set in a prison wing housing convicted murderers in solitary confinement, the action shifts from individual cells to the minds of the prisoners and the guard-voyeur.

Swain | Gregory Markopoulous 1950 | 20 minutes

An exploration of a subconscious rejection of the stereotyped masculine role. The isolated protagonist moves on a trance-like journey of poetic action toward a climactic scene of self-realisation.

Flaming Creatures | Jack Smith 1963 | 43 minutes

Inspired by the films of Hollywood Z movie queen Maria Montez, and Josef von Sternberg with Dietrich, this dream-like evocation of a mythological Hollywood is a comedy set in a haunted Hollywood studio. Flaming Creatures is comprised of ten scenes of uncertain polymorphous perverse sex—a key work of the American avant garde and queer cinema.
