Documentary

Featuring interviews recorded in Los Angeles and Berlin in 2019/20, the experimental documentary short OINK! offers a portrait of gay men who—in different ways—relate to the gay “pig” sexual imaginary. The film provides insight into their experiences of identity, masculinity, community, belonging, sexual pleasure and intimacy, as they are co-shaped and framed by 21st-century media.

The film will have its theatrical premiere in November in London at Fringe! 2020, followed by a roundtable discussion on “Gay Sex and the Pandemic” featuring Suzie Krueger (founder of gay sex clubs FIST and Hard On), John Thomas (adult performer), and Dr Elliot Evans (Lecturer in French Studies, Gender and Sexuality at the University of Birmingham).

If you’re a festival or cinema and would like to consider the documentary for screening, please do contact us to request a screener. The film is available as a .mov file (1080px, H265, stereo) and a 5.1 DCP package.
