Skin Flick Cinephilia: Sexploitation Cinema’s Scenes of Looking

Saturday, March 12 2016

Elena Gorfinkel is giving a talk titled “Skin Flick Cinephilia: Sexploitation Cinema’s Scenes of Looking” on March 12 at the Offscreen Festival in Brussels, Belgium.

Elena’s talk surveys the 1960s US sexploitation cinema, exploring its location between low budget filmmaking and art cinema, pausing to analyze some of its aesthetic and reflexive fixations. It will offer a cinephile account of the aesthetic value of the sexploitation image as an archive of bodily gestures, textures, faces and places (including the scene of the grindhouse and film theater itself).
