Synopsis

An experimental reinterpretation of Andy Warhol's 1963 silent short film of the same name, “Kiss” recontextualizes his protest against the Hays Code's time restriction of onscreen kissing as an impassioned indictment of laws that prohibit and punish homosexuality in certain countries. Featuring a cast of performers hailing from countries where these laws exist transforming an expression of love and desire into a political protest, “Kiss” artfully challenges and resists the sanctioned condemnation and persecution LGBTQ persons confront. Selected screenings: Sicilia Queer Film Festival (2012); Schwule Filmwoche Freiburg - Freiburg International Gay Film Festival (2012); Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film and Video Festival (Official Selection, 2012).
