The Female Perspective on Sexploitation
A compilation programme with film fragments, short films and talks bringing female film makers to the front who followed their own path in the erotic film industry. The genre that is called Sexploitation, and had its heydays in the 1960s and 1970s has always been dominated by men and therefore mostly characterized by a stereotypical representation of women. On the other hand it also allowed women to be evil and violent characters instead of always being the victims who needed to be rescued!
WORM is a Rotterdam based artists collective, a venue, shop, cinema and workspace for music, film and new media, with the world as its playground. Transgressing normal segregations between media, we represent the authentic and the unruly, the obsessed and the adventurers. Born under the stars of punk, dada, fluxus, situationism and futurism, WORM has grown to a tenacious organisation that combines the ‘do it yourself’ mentality of it’s ancestors with ultra-pragmatism. The output of WORM is film, radio, concerts, performances, webprojects, installations, cd’s and a 24/7 webstation. WORM focusses on OpenSource, recycled material, superuse, seriousness and fun.
