Erotikafton invites you to a screening of The Sad Girls of the Mountains – a German fake documentary about sad porn stars, feminism and the pervasive power of the male gaze. The screening will be followed by a Q&A over Zoom with the directors Theo Meow och Candy Flip. Pre-film: Sex in Times of Corona.
THE SAD GIRLS OF THE MOUNTAINS
Four depressive teenagers withdraw from patriarchal society to start a new life in a mountain hideout. Isolated from society, they transform their misery and melancholia into pornography for their website "Sad Girls" - and use the money they earn to fund their survival. For them, sadness is an act of countercultural resistance, and they funnel whatever funds they can to support female Kurdish militia groups. Just when everything seems to be going fine, the arrival of two gonzo reporters threatens to upset the fragile balance of this feminist micro-utopia.

Erotikafton is an annual art festival by Fennek Film, dedicated to erotic art in all its shapes and forms, that has been held in Malmö, Sweden since 2015. "With Erotikafton, we want to broaden the idea about and the view of what erotica is and can be – seductive, lustful, fun, sickening, provocative, political, corporeal, intellectual, mind-broadening. Erotikafton is a celebration and a tribute where we embrace erotica, the body and sexuality."
