BEDSIDE PRODUCTIONS: 2426F
Time: 31 May, 7-9pm
Venue: UKS, Keysers gate 1
On Wednesday 31 May at 7pm, performer and kink educator Hanna Noelle aka Cherry Velour and Anne Sofie Steen Sverdrup, co-founder and leader of feminist pornographic film production collective Bedside Productions, will screen their new film 2426F. After the screening, the two will share their thoughts on the film as well as on BDSM, consensual non-consent and the graphic depiction of violence in porn.
PLEASE READ BEFORE ATTENDING:
This film contains graphic depictions of hardcore pornographic violence and CNC (consensual non-consent) between consenting and experienced adults. This includes sexual assault and abduction, unsimulated torture, and blood.
This event is for those who feel confident to watch a film of this nature, and we urge anyone that feels uncertain about this to not attend the screening. As an alternative, you will be able to watch the film at home, perhaps with someone you trust, once it is released on Bedside Productions’ website.
We will give another warning before the screening and audience members are very welcome to leave at any time.
Hana Noelle aka Cherry Velour is an educator, performer, artist, dominatrix and all-around BDSM clown. Drawing on her background in art, she approaches kink education with creativity, accessibility and playfulness, expanding perceptions of BDSM and taking it out of the dungeon.
