Ellen Cantor - Pinochet Porn

Location:
mumok Kino

Pinochet Porn (2008–2016) is an epic experimental film embodying the multifaceted work of the late artist Ellen Cantor (1961–2013). Cantor worked on this feature-length, episodic narrative about the intertwined lives of five children and their maturation into adulthood during the final five years of her life. Produced using Super 8, archival footage, and animated drawings, Pinochet Porn takes the form of a soap opera, at once tragic and comical, and marked by a subversive sexuality. The story weaves between personal, political, and historical circumstances, obliquely revolving around the political discord under General Augusto Pinochet’s regime in Chile. The film is a document of an extended moment in New York and London avant-garde art and culture, featuring a range of artists, curators, writers, filmmakers, protagonists of the underground, musicians, and their children.
