PERFECT SUMMERTIME VIEWING: ANTONIO DA SILVA’S CARIOCAS

CARIOCAS non-explicit trailer from Antonio Da Silva Films on Vimeo.

CARIOCAS by Antonio Da Silva

This is a voyeuristic hunt during my trip to Rio de Janeiro with lots of sea, sun, sweat and sexual encounters. Brazilian men care about their physique and they freely allow admiration of their sculpted bodies. The sensuality of those men creates blurry sexual identities.

cariocas_by_antonio_da_silva_17

An outdoors gym in the Arpoador area unveiled to me the vibrancy of the country and the diversity of men. Just behind the gym there is a gay cruising park. The gym crowd training during the day is very different from the one training at night. The film is a portrait of this shift while adding more Brazilian testosterone to this Summer’s football excitement in the country!

_johnSex-and-Friends-at-Hairspray-Premiere-Party_1988

Sissydude: Photographer John Simone has two photo retrospectives happening during Toronto’s World Pride. The shows feature New York club culture icons from 1987- 1990. They include Rupaul, Kenny Kenny, Leigh Bowery, John Sex, Quentin Crisp, James St. James, Divine, The It Twins and of course “Party Monster” Michael Alig. Even Cher, Michael Jackson, Madonna and Sandra Bernhard pop up!

_leighBowery-at-Copacabana-Club-with-KennyKenny-and-charlesAtlas-in-background_1988

Simone left Toronto for New York in 1986 and immediately started working for Club-18 (The Roxy), Details Magazine (including Details’ influential nightlife column by Stephen Saban), Vanity Fair and The Village Voice. Of course the magic really started happening for him when friend Michael Alig appointed Simone chief photographer for his Project X Magazine.

Of course the magnificent creatures in the photos are what really gets him going…

THE TENTH is a publication of art and culture based on the history, culture and research in ideas and aesthetics of the BLACK, GAY community. Loosely inspired by W.E.B. Du Bois’ influential 1903 essay, “The Talented Tenth” and playing off of Alfred Kinsey’s popular, mythical 10% estimate, THE TENTH is a product of the dialogue at the intersection of this “10th” — the vanguard minds of the BLACK, GAY community. Print Issue out this APRIL 2014. FIRST PRINTING SOLD OUT reserve a copy (coming in July) HERE.

WINTER KEPT US WARM (1965) via CLGA & DEVIATES inc.

WKW web resized

CLGA.CA: The first gay-themed Canadian feature film will soon celebrate its 50th anniversary! While it might not be a familiar title to many people today, Winter Kept Us Warm was one of the first Canadian films to attract international attention upon its release in 1965. Even more remarkable is the fact that the film was written, directed and produced by a 22-year-old University of Toronto student named David Secter…as he was also working to complete his degree.

The film, which explores the burgeoning relationship between U of T students Doug and Peter (played by John Labow and Henry Tarvainen), was shot on campus beginning in 1964. While their bond is not explicitly sexual, the subtext that the two are ‘more than friends’ was clear to audiences and reviewers at the time (writing in the Daily Star in November of 1965, critic Robert Fulford references the “latent homosexual lines” that characterize Doug and Peter’s connection). Given that homosexuality was still an offence under Canada’s Criminal Code until 1969, the film’s relative frankness is all the more significant.

With actors from the Hart House Theatre group and a camera crew from Ryerson Polytechnic Institute, Winter Kept Us Warm was very much a student-driven project. As Secter noted in a 1965 Globe and Mail article, filming had to be organized around everyone’s “lectures, labs and peace marches”. Secter and his colleagues struggled to secure the financing to finish their film, and by the summer of 1965 they found themselves with no prospects, mounting debts, and a four-hour rough cut of the film. Their fortunes changed suddenly when Secter received a phone call from the Commonwealth Festival in Wales, which was keen to screen the ‘world’s first student feature’—in six weeks’ time! The filmmakers managed to pull the finished product together by the deadline, and the film premiered in Cardiff on September, 1965.

Winter Kept Us Warm had its Canadian premiere at the ROM theatre a few months later (“College-Made Film Well Worth Seeing”, proclaimed the Globe and Mail). The film went on to a successful theatrical run throughout North America, and it was the first English-language Canadian feature to be shown at the Cannes film festival in 1966. Prominent artists like David Cronenberg have sung its praises.

PIX a new short film by antonio da silva

pix-antonio-da-silva-13

PIX is my new short film and it is inspired by online Gay dating. PIX is a series of flickering images (faceless-selfies) of 2500 gay men building a three minutes animation portraying what is happening in the “marketplace of desire”. Thousands of male bodies in typical male poses are put together creating the mosaic of one body.

pix_by_antonio_da_silva_13

You can watch the trailer on my website.

The full-length film is also available after a contribution of 1$. Every contribution helps me to keep on producing my self-funded films that aim to be artistic as well as sexually explicit.

PIX contains sexually explicit content. Make sure you are over 18 years old before clicking to the site.

PIX goes beyond the casual hook up. For some our online profiles and exposed body feed our narcissistic and exhibitionistic side, while for others is an endless voyeuristic hunt.

HOTARIOUS: Byredo Parfums CANDY DARLING scented candle was a thing… and Byredo’s frilly perfume discriptions are a thing of beauty!

Candy Darling is a home scent composition offered in candle form, composed by acclaimed perfumer Olivia Giacobetti for BYREDO“, the niche fragrance line founded by Ben Gorham. With top notes of coriander, heart notes of rosewood and patchouli and base notes of benzoin and sweet musk, Candy Darling is reminiscent of the Warhol transsexual superstar of the same name and The Velvet Underground muse who died tragically at the age of 29.

o.19444

Her persona has been immortalized in “Women in Revolt” (1971) while more mainstream viewers might remember her as a disco patron in the Jane Fonda vehicle “Klute”.

American fashion designer Zac Posen mentions lighting the ByRedo candles in his studio, and specifically cites Candy Darling among his most favorite things in a recent Vogue UK spread.

SISSYDUDE LOVES: “IN THEIR ROOM- BERLIN” full feature @ i want your love the movie

In-Their-Room-Berlin

IN THEIR ROOM BERLIN sample from Travis Mathews on Vimeo.

Sample of the film above. Want to watch the FULL film? Watch it HERE for Free thru March 31st

NEW NOW NEXT: With films like Blue is the Warmest Color and Nymphomania getting critical acclaim, the lines between porn and mainstream film continue to blur. Now Travis Mathews, who brought us the explicit I Want Your Love and co-directed Interior. Leather. Bar with James Franco, presents another transgressive film, In Their Room: Berlin.

Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 1.17.31 PM

Part of an international series, Berlin is a quasi-documentary, tracing the romantic and sexual lives of gay men in the German capital.  “This is an incredible series,” says producer Jack Shamama. “The Berlin installment was shot while Travis was on tour with I Want Your Love, but hasn’t been seen much outside of Germany.  For fans of Mathew’s it’s a chance to see something new. But we’re also hoping that it helps introduce him to a new audience.”

Screen Shot 2014-03-20 at 1.17.10 PM

The film is being released by Naked Sword, the adult-film company that has branched out into more artistic fare with I Want Your Love. It’ll be available for be free through March 31 on IWantYourLoveTheMovie.com, and then on the members’ section of NakedSword.com (NSFW)

“Ironically, I think it took a porn company to show that an artistically honest film could use sex in a way that wasn’t exploitative or gratuitous,” says Naked Sword CEO Tim Valenti. “You see it all over gay media now, from Blue Is the Warmest Color to Looking. Travis’s follow up film Interior. Leather Bar went to Sundance, got mainstream distribution, and a glowing New York Times review. It’s funny to think that I Want Your Love got banned when we were showing it at festivals just last year.”
