LE RAGAZZE DEL PORNO
FRI 6. 7. / 18H
CINEMA TOWER

This year’s Tabor side program, The Porn Girls (Le Ragazze del Porno), deals with films by Monica Strambini, the founder of the collective which under the same name gathers Italian female filmmakers. In her films, Strambini combines art with sexuality and pornography: Can sex be a film narrative? Can porn be intimate? These, as well as many other questions related to female sexuality are explored through Valentina Nappi, the main protagonist and a young Italian porn star. Strambini comes to a conclusion: “Because art needs porn’s popularity and porn needs art’s creativity.” Maša Peče, a film curator and critic and a member of this year’s jury will present the program.
