Festival du Film de Fesses

MUBI Special

We are thrilled to renew our collaboration with the Festival du Film de Fesses, the luscious Parisian event celebrating erotic cinema, which every year presents a retrospective of gems from the past and from afar, filled with pleasure and desire of all shapes and sizes.
This year, the festival honors Japanese erotic cinema with a voluptuous retrospective!

Pleasures of the Flesh

Nagisa Ôshima Japan, 1965

A corrupt businessman blackmails a lovelorn murderer, Atsushi, into watching over his suitcase full of embezzled cash while he serves a jail sentence. Rather than wait for the man to retrieve his money, however, Atsushi decides to spend it all in one libidinous rush.

Asparagus

Suzan Pitt United States, 1979

Asparagus combines various animation techniques to create a bright, colorful Freudian dreamscape filled with the subliminal imagery found in a feminine dream, filled with sexualized plants in a literal garden of earthy delights where asparagus spears are shown in various metaphoric ways.

Indecent Desires

Doris Wishman United States, 1968

A man finds a doll in a garbage can, and seeing that the woman he lives with looks like the doll, he starts touching. However, the doll transmits these touches to her.

After hubby Ted goes to work, Ellen putters around the apartment in her nightgown cleaning up. When she takes the trash out, the janitor forces her into his apartment and rapes her. When he tries to rape her again, she dispatches him and then hits the road, a fugitive from injustice.

Nude on the Moon

Doris Wishman, Raymond Phelan United States, 1961
