A film screening of adult film “Through The Looking Glass” and lecture.
Monk, of TwistedMonk.com, will be providing history, commentary and trivia about the film as well as historical context about its creation and impact on the sexual revolution of the 1970’s.
Calling Monk a “vintage porn fan” would be an understatement.
For Monk, the “Golden Age of Porn”, 1969-1984, was about more than just the films created. The films of this era, also known as “grind house” or exploitation”, represent never before seen expressions of daring creativity when reflected against the tectonic shifts in the political culture, social upheaval, and radically changing views on obscenity and censorship. Through this series, Monk hopes to introduce, or reintroduce, you to some of the films from the era, while adding historical context and info not just about the films, but how and why they were able to be created. In the end, hoping you can enjoy them not just as a stand alone work, but more of a cultural time capsule from an unprecedented time in our shared history.
All sexes, genders, races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, relationship orientations, religions are welcome and celebrated.
