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.”

T-MAG: “But for the video for the song “On a Path,” which premieres above, Pallett turned to one of his longest-running creative partners, the artist Steve Kedo. The pair have worked together since they were college roommates. For this particular video, Kedo stayed at Pallett’s house for an entire week while photographing every object in it. “It’s very much conceptually about taking stock of our possessions, and the implied validation of life from the things we surround ourselves with,” Pallett explained. “And it will also help with insurance claims in case my possessions ever got destroyed in a fire!”

SISSYDUDE LOVES: HILDA! Paintings by Duane Bryers

7b91565f9e40632c729513e18d69a699

I posted HILDA on my old Sissydude blog years ago (when it was on Blogspot) and came across them yesterday. Love these paintings so much!
Thanks Toil girls!


TOIL GIRLS
: Duane Bryers’ incredible Hilda paintings were done specifically for Bigelow & Brown’s Hilda calendars. These were illustrated between 1957 and 1970 although Mr. Bryers continued to do original paintings for the calendars until the early 1980s. These were all primarily rendered in watercolor employing the service of a number of plus-size models, but more often than not, he
used no model at all, a feat most impressive. MORE HILDA IMAGES HERE @ TOIL GIRLS

THE QUEEN (full version of the 1968 CLASSIC) @ MyLifeasPhil… via MAMA!!

tumblr_lkfmn3GLgT1qfnhuco1_1280

The Queen was filmed in NYC in 1967 and released in theaters in 1968. In 1967 it was illegal for men to dress as women. The documentary follows a 1967 Drag pageant judged by Andy Warhol among others. It stars Jack Doroshow aka Flawless Mother Sabrina, Richard Finochio aka Rachel Harlow and Crystal LaBeija. Crystal went on to start The House of LaBeija pageants which was the premise of the 90’s documentary “Paris is Burning.” In 1972 Richard Finochio underwent sex reassignment surgery to become Rachel Harlow, she began dating John B. Kelly, Grace Kelly’s brother. The relationship ended when John’s mother said she would disinherit him if he married Rachel. Rachel opened the Philadelphia night club “Harlow’s” in the 1970’s. The only person to surface since this classic film was made is Jack Doroshow when he was interviewed by James St. James on youtube. International Chrysis (1951-1990) can be seen as a teenage boy rehearsing dance numbers. These are the Queens who opened the doors for RuPaul and RuPaul’s Drag Race of today. via MyLifeasPhil
