Thursday 22nd September h. 9 PM @Cinema Massimo – Sala Cabiria

Driven by her feminist ideals and dreaming of using her law degree to change society, the young and brilliant black lawyer Simone is specialized in the defense of ill-treated, raped, abused, and discriminated women. In her private life, after ending a past as a cam girl to pay for her studies, she experiences new erotic practices, alone and with different partners, feeling more and more attracted by the BDSM universe and the connection between violence and eros. Combining the notion of decoloniality with the debate around gender and race, the third feature film of Brazilian director Julia Murat, winner of the Pardo d’oro at the latest Locarno Film Festival, will be premiered in Italy at the Fish&Chips Film Festival.

Friday 23rd September 6.30PM @Unione Culturale Franco Antonicelli

Theatrical performance by Linda Porn, organized in collaboration with the organization Il Colorificio and activist Valentine aka Fluida Wolf
La Llorona (2021) is an audiovisual stage performance based on the Mexican myth of the Llorona created in the colonial era, reinterpreted from a feminist and contemporary perspective. An indigenous Mexican woman, accused of murdering her children because she’s been abandoned by her conquistador husband, is condemned to wander for eternity in Mexico City, weeping in mourning. Using different languages and a militant interpretation, this performance, for the first time in Italy, questions the basic concepts of the myth itself: misogyny, racism and colonialism.
Free entry / Up-to-you
Trigger warning: self-harm will be practiced during the performance and blood will be seen.

Saturday 24th September 2.30PM @Blah Blah

Workshop by Psicoerotica Femminista
Erotic energy is a very powerful life engine that is not exclusively related to sex as a shared relational practice. Due to contextual needs or existential impediments, sometimes it’s difficult to turn your sexual desire into physical satisfaction. But sexuality unfolds in many different forms, and pleasure can find alternative ways of fulfillment.
Come find out what is your most fulfilling way to keep the flame of pleasure alive and crackling, together with pornoactivist Slavina and relational psychoanalyst Serena Calò.
Price: €7. Book by writing to hello@fishandchipsfilmfestival.it by September 23.

Meeting coordinated by Conigli Bianchi
From missed opportunities of the great Hollywood to the gems of independent productions, for 41 years cinema and TV have been sourced from the narrative potential of HIV. Through video excerpts and enlightening debates, Er Baghetta of the anti-serophobia artivist collective White Rabbits guides us on a journey inside the representations that shaped the imagery about HIV. To align with the warming climate of our political election, the audience will be asked to vote for the winners of the Intersectionality Award, the Activism Medal and the White Rabbit Oscar.

Photographs by Flebafenicio and Alessandra Maria Luigia.
Couples is an in-progress photographic and editorial project. The exhibition displays a series of nude portrays of couples of all ages and genders. Couples aims at showing the bonds between people and intimacy: nudity is an integral and functional part of the representation which can easily turn into erotic images. The final goal is to edit a large printed volume dedicated to the passion and intimacy that bonds us to each other.
