A year-long programme on sex and self-display'.

On Thursday 8 October at 6.30 pm, Il Colorificio introduces the cycle. The presentation is followed by the screening of a selection of short films.
On Friday 9 October from 11 am to 11 pm, short, medium-length and full-length films by directors and artists who have gone over the limits of the mainstream porn device and question it as a single model.
