(Czech Republic)
San Francisco premiere of the work by this eminent Czech director- Grodecki's third entry in his trilogy of films examining the exploitation of young rural Czech boys migrating to Prague in the hopes of a better life.This is his first fully fictional trip through the world of young male prostitutes. His take on the industry is simultaneously disgusted with the tragedies and misery but fascinated by the extreme sexual overtones and fantasies. He is so abhorred by it, that he can't stop thinking about it. Dark, disturbing - but in regards to the business - it features real whores, real scenes, and some intriguing insights. Screened in video. (35mm-133 minutes-1997)

8PM Vice and Red Noses

John Woodward, TAZ Films
Producer Tammy Stones
VICE tells one story that you never see on TV - the true story of the prosecution and persecution of one woman by a Texas vice squad. This courtroom dramedy points to the comical absurdities involved with prosecuting a stripper (played by the beautiful Maxine Bahns from "The Brothers McMullen") for indecent exposure. The actual trial transcript is the primary source for this scathingly funny indictment of police corruption. VICE ridicules the idiocy of governmental thugs and this on-going witch-hunt by an insane bureaucracy.
When Woodward attended the trial upon which VICE is based, several vice officers were waiting to testify in the court hallway. One noticed Woodward's tape recorder in his satchel. The officers assumed he had recorded them (the judge had ordered no discussion between witnesses) and challenged Woodward to settle the matter in the alley behind the Courthouse. Outnumbered six to one, Woodward figured it was wiser to fight this battle on film. (35mm-89 minutes-2001)

Director Joseph Siedel
Producer Sandra Moore
DP Gus Kyriakakis
"Peter has a problem."
The Red Nose Diaries follows Peter, a man trapped in a drab world and unsatisfying relationship. Peter accidentally discovers a way to spice up his love life that inadvertently becomes a crippling obsession in this twisted comic excursion. (16 mm-11 min. 2001)

10PM Nightfall

Erika Shershun
Shershun, a San Francisco maker, directed & produced this provocative film as a response to one of the most common portrayals of women in film, a role that every actress is inevitably offered during her career: the Whore.
"Despite the popularity of the prostitute since the beginning of narrative, there are few instances of works depicting her as a realistic, multidimensional human being, " Shershun writes. "Why is this occupation used to brand and solely define a woman's identity? Sadly, society's judgements reverberate throughout these women's lives. The most disturbing fictitious cliche is harsh judgement, resulting in violent punishment of the prostitute or a loved one, and, if the character survives, society's sanctioned redemption. As is often the case, Alicia's persecutor is not drug addiction, a pimp or a john; it is patriarchal society's hypocrisy that victimizes her. The film is populated with characters living on the margins of society, struggling to survive, teetering on the brink of oblivion." (16mm- 98 min-2001)
