XConfessions: A Conversation With Erika Lust

Director: Erika Lust • Sweden

Erika Lust brings a much-needed feminist’s voice to the erotic film industry, shooting her explicit short films with an eye toward expressing female pleasure. The filmmaker’s xConfessions project gathers erotic fantasies and testimonials from her online audience, which she brings to life through her filmmaking. In conversation with Chicago-based filmmaker Maria Finitzo, Lust, in person, will show clips from her films and discuss the taboo nature of onscreen pleasure. Contains explicit content.
