Q&A with the filmmakers/actors
*BUTCH Voices After Dark (presented by Pink and White Productions)*
Birthday [DIR Shine Louise Houston (2018, 7 mins)] — A night out, an old friend, and a special treat coalesce in this poetic short film by Shine Louise Houston of Pink & White Productions. Starring Nenna Feelmore and Barbary Rose, with appearances by Sal Marquez, Jack HammerXL, Jasper Stone, and Ruckus.
SNAPSHOT [*CLIP* DIR Shine Louise Houston (2016, 9 mins)] — Showing a clip from the full-length feature film. A freelance photographer and woman about town, Charlie has her sights set on Danny, an older butch in search of adventure and romance. Just as things are about to click, Charlie accidentally snaps a photo of a murderer and becomes his new target. With a killer hot on her trail — and a new relationship developing — will Charlie find love… or her own demise?
Tribute [DIR Max Disgrace (2017, 7 mins)] — “Tribute” re-imagines the idea of a lesbian cruising ground in London, in direct response to Annette Kennerley's “Sex Lies Religion” (1993). At a time when physical spaces for dykes to freely express their sexuality in London is scarce, “Tribute” is a materialisation of this fantasy space in film form, enacted in the same historic cruising ground - Abney Park Cemetery in Stoke Newington - where Kennerley shot her film decades before.
Pain Dulce [DIR Ramses Rodstein (2018, 8 mins)] — Who knew breakfast could be so deliciously kinky? In this short erotic bdsm film, Ramses Rodstein prepares coffee, pan dulce, and a loop of rope for his still sleeping lover, Tenoch El Guero. These two xicanx non-binary trans lovers use subtle signs of consent to reveal a sensual intimacy with one another. Trading in equal parts tender and devious, the action builds until Tenoch is mischievously ready to serve breakfast to the rope bound Ramses, who gasps and whines in sweet ecstasy for the pain dulce.
