Fucking Different!

15 times queer crossover: Lesbian filmmakers from Berlin were asked to make a short film about their ideas of gay love and sexuality – conversely, gay filmmakers should make a short film about lesbian sexuality or eroticism.
Whether animated, documentary or feature film – there were no limits to the participants in terms of genres. Whether experimental or conventional – the form that the filmmakers wanted to use was also up to them. The only requirements were the film length – it should be between three and seven minutes – and the film format: Mini-DV should be the end result. The filmmaker Michael Stock contributes with his short film “Stardust lost …” with a great cast.

The result is a collection of very different films, mostly about the disclosure, questioning and deconstruction of clichés, which, despite an apparent rapprochement between gays and lesbians in the past ten years, are still in the minds of those who are terrified are anchored to each other. The diversity of the contributions gives hope for a thoughtful and informative expansion of our role ideas and gender-specific patterns. Because: We are not just fucking differently, we are fucking different. And that’s just as well.

 

Press critics:

One of the conventions of porn is that it does not linger long on the plot (in the sense of a plot), but usually gets to the point quickly. This also applies to the short film anthology “Fucking Different XXX”, which brings together eight examples of queer porn crossovers. If there is a man lying in the green and reading Goethe’s “Faust” (commented by Erich Trunz, so in a good, but not the canonical edition) and another man steps out of the bushes, then that must be enough – the rest is sex . The “Fucking Different” series already contains several collections of gay and lesbian self-understanding films from many places around the world. “XXX” now explicitly adds pornographic contributions – with the special feature that the filmmakers placed the opposite sex in the center of their scenes: a queer tenderness overlaps the sometimes harder fetish scenes.
