”The most extraordinary film I’ve seen in my life is certainly ‘Portrait of Jason.’ It is absolutely fascinating.”—Ingmar Bergman
DANGEROUS MINDS: During a winter night in 1966, director Shirley Clarke brought her friend, Jason Holliday, to her apartment atop the Chelsea Hotel in New York City and filmed him for twelve consecutive hours. Over the course of the evening, Jason drinks and gets high as he tell stories of his life as a gay, African-American man. Clarke took the footage and edited it down to 95 minutes, resulting in Portrait of Jason (1967). In the film, Jason is charming, entertaining, funny, contradictory, and boorish. His stories concerning class, race, sexuality, and identity alternate between humorous and tragic, all told by a man who appears larger than life.
Portrait of Jason is a landmark film. In this setting, an individual was allowed to simply tell his story over the course of a film’s standard running time. Its cinéma vérité style brings to mind Andy Warhol’s Screen Tests, as well as the films of John Cassavetes, but Clarke’s work is a truly unique movie experience. This mainly has to do with Jason Holliday (a/k/a Aaron Payne), the only person who appears on screen.
The Village Voice’s Melissa Anderson wrote that Portrait of Jason “says more about race, class, and sexuality than just about any movie before or since.”
HAIRY HOLES! BRITNEY! HAIRY HOLES! DOMINIC! HAIRY HOLES! BEARDIES! IT’S A HAPPY BIRTHDAY AUBS MEGA-POST!!!
Oh Elijah… such a hot “straight naked thug”. He reminds me of all those jocks in high school that I got to see naked in the showers and gave me an instant boner (which I had to cover up quickly). The slides, the Peen.. errr… Penn State tee, the brawn, the cleft chin, that huge studly ass, his haircut… his smile. I’m dying here…
But please Elijah, please stop shaving your pubes!!! I still love you though.
STRAIGHT NAKED THUGS: Handsome and buff straight guy Elijah is back, getting his cock out for a piss and enjoying a jack off outside. Most guys have shot a load outside, but very few are gorgeous straight jocks like Elijah, and very few get completely naked when they do it! He starts off with a piss over a torched car, then moves on to enjoying a good jack off, getting completely naked and showing off his buff body. A little playing with his nipples and more stroking of that tasty looking dick and he’s spewing out his hot cum over the ground, looking satisfied with his efforts. One day someone is gonna catch us!

Невероятно авангардный клип на песню “Яблочко” 1946. “Союздетфильм” (это киностудия им. Горького с 1948). Я не понимал, почему такая необычная форма могла существовать во времена жёсткого контроля формы в искусстве. Теперь мне объяснили – это учебное пособие для операторского факультета по комбинированным съёмкам. Оператор Михаил Кириллов – который был оператором фильма “Окраина” 1933г. (режиссёр Борис Барнет) – культовый фильм для киношников всего мира. (отмечен в Венеции в 1934 году).
Translation: Incredibly avant-garde music video for the song “Bullseye” 1946. “Soyuzdetfilm” (Gorky Film Studio it with 1948). Mihail Kirillov-operator who was operator of the movie “Suburb” in 1933. (directed by Boris Barnet)-a cult film for filmmakers around the world. (awarded in Venice in 1934 year).
Bill Harrison enters the strange world of Bijou in a scene from Wakefield Poole's classic 1972 film.
I’ve always loved Da Silva’s 2012 short “Julian”… so romantic, sad and dreamy. Julian is a 30-year-old French-speaking Swiss guy from Geneva. He and António had a summer fling in 2011. António took his Super 8 camera out and started filming.

ANTONIO DA SILVA FILMS: At a public car park a hidden camera captures sexual interactions between men. Cars can be seen parked or slowly moving around with drivers ready to sexually engage with others. This is a refuge for men with diversity of age, physical attributes, marital and social status. These men take a break from their daily lives and put into practice some of their innermost desires and fantasies.
This place is no longer available for cruising but during its glory days it used to be one of the busiest cruising areas located at the Jamor National Stadium near Lisbon, Portugal. The park was never empty and activities continued from morning to evening hours.
What is “Dogging”?
Dogging (coming form British slang) is when people meet up in car parks and watch each other having sex. A similar behavior seen in dogs. Sometimes people join in but it is mainly about watching and getting off on it.
This documentary short film was made in collaboration with Miguel Arroja who had been capturing action on camera since 2001. After he saw my work he wanted to share his precious footage with me. I was impressed with the activities at the place. I went there in 2013 to experience it myself and do more filming.
