“A Brief History of Porn: A Multimedia Lecture” 8:00pm @ Space 1026


“A Brief History of Porn” is a multimedia lecture delivered by Sam Benjamin, author of the forthcoming book, “American Gangbang: A  Love Story” (Simon and Schuster, 2011), a true memoir of Benjamin’s five-year stint as director and performer in Los Angeles’s adult film industry.

Length: Approximately 90minutes.


About Sam Benjamin

Sam Benjamin was born in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. From 1995 to 1999, he attended Brown University. Upon graduating, he received the annual William J. Weston Award for achievement in Film and Video. Post-school life led Sam to Santa Cruz, California, where he first conceived of his pornographic destiny. He would create “feel-good” erotic films – adult movies that actually had some sort of plot – and sell them on eBay, garnering a modest fame for his efforts, revolutionizing a dying genre, and making a small killing in the process.

Benjamin worked in porn for three years; became rich; found porno love; broke his heart; burnt out; quit the biz; cleared his head; atoned for his sins; returned home; applied to graduate school.

Sam Benjamin graduated from the California Institute of the Arts in 2005, with a joint degree in Critical Studies and Integrated Media. He has been a guest lecturer at NYU and will speak extensively this fall at universities across the United States.

Sublime Frequencies

So I meant to post these a while ago, but the website was being worked on at the time.

The wonderful folks from Sublime Frequencies stopped at the space to show there latest videos from Africa! The footage was really transporting and it was a wonderful experience just getting a glimpse into another world. If you ever have a chance to watch a screening I highly recommend it.

You can see a trailer for Olivia Wyatt’s film here. And it looks like they have a kickstarter project page to raise money for a trip to Sudan.

Staring into the Sun


8:00PM Staring into the Sun
A film by Olivia Wyatt
60 minutes

Staring into the Sun is the latest ethno-folk cinema classic from Sublime Frequencies. Ethiopia is known to be one of the oldest areas inhabited by humans and presently has over 80 diverse ethnic groups. Photographer/filmmaker Olivia Wyatt explores 13 different tribes throughout Ethiopia in this visually stunning film. Traveling from the northern highlands to the lower Omo Valley, Wyatt brings together the worlds of Zar spirit possession; Hamer tribal wedding ceremonies; Borena water well polyphonic singing; wild hyena feedings; and bizarre Ethiopian TV segments; presenting an enchanting look at these ethereal images, landscapes and sounds from the horn of Africa. The tribes featured in this film are captured with an unflinching sense of realism and poetic admiration resulting in a visual and aural feast of the senses.

Land of the Songhai

Hisham Mayet’s latest film explores the music and landscape of the Songhai, around the Niger River in Western Niger. Zarma mock possession hoedowns, Wodaabe trance vocal performances, Spirit possession ceremonies, Godje one sting laments, contigi string masters, comsaa griots and Sahel night markets create a bizarre and fascinating glimpse into the arid and culturally vibrant bend in the Niger river.
