Talking Pictures - Blue Movies: Sex and Sexuality on Screen No classification required
Co-presented with the Wheeler Centre
From Wetlands to My Mistress, MIFF 2014 is filled with risqué business. But the question is: how do you write ‘meaningful' sex for the screen in a way that isn't meaningless sleaze? Writer and journalist Clem Bastow talks to screenwriters Stephan Elliott (The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert), Ana Kokkinos (Head On, Blessed), Desiree Akhavan (Appropriate Behavior, MIFF 2014) Joe Swanberg (Happy Christmas, MIFF 2014; Drinking Buddies, MIFF 2013), along with University of Melbourne Professor of Cinema Studies Barbara Creed, about using the sex scene to actually say something new.
