NOTE EARLY START TIME - Films will begin promptly at 7:00 PM!

In the 1970s, San Francisco became an international vanguard of the Gay Liberation movement. In campy, anarchic film and theater works and onscreen explorations of their own sexual experience, gay and lesbian filmmakers in 1970s San Francisco fused politics, sex, and art, and created a body of work that is as radical as it is entertaining. As part of the five-day arts festival Mondo Homo, Film Love presents two nights of rare films from a legendary time and place in queer history.

Part 1: Bodies - the sexual revolution on screen
Ranging from tender to political to obsessed, each of these San Francisco filmmakers represents sex on screen as a revolutionary act. Barbara Hammer’s pioneer 70s films brought explicit lesbian sexuality to audiences, while Curt McDowell’s direct, brutally frank filmmaking style culminates in Loads, a notorious filmed diary of his anonymous sexual encounters, and Ronnie, a humorous and affecting portrait of a straight hustler who will switch teams if the money's right. Coni Beeson’s Holding documents the intimacy of a young lesbian couple at the beginning of the Women’s Movement, while Michael Wallin’s The Place Between Our Bodies explores the filmmaker’s search for emotional (and sexual) connection in the cruising atmosphere of mid-70s San Francisco.

NOTE: This program contains graphic imagery.

QUEER SAN FRANCISCO 1970-1980 is a Film Love event. The Film Love series provides access to rare but important films, and seeks to increase awareness of the rich history of experimental and avant-garde film. The series is curated and hosted by Andy Ditzler for Frequent Small Meals. Film Love was voted Best Film Series in Atlanta by the critics of Creative Loafing in 2006.
