It’s official! The line up has been released and guess what? On October 21st at 8h30 PM, the emblematic Chicago International Film Festival will present XConfessions: A conversation with Erika Lust. A space where I will exhibit the best of my XConfessions series while explaining the need of a new approach to audiovisual female pleasure. In conversation with fellow film director Maria Finitzo, we’ll discuss not only the taboos of the Industry, but also the cinematographic challenges of the genre.
Marked as a Highlight, I feel incredibly and humbly honored to be among some of the biggest and most respected names of the Industry, from Todd Haynes (I’m not There) to Paolo Sorrentino (The Great Beauty), this year’s line up is more than I could dream of! I’m very thankful for the opportunity to present my work with pride and to the daring producers who understand my voice as a female erotic film director.
