Erotic Animation: Tastes and Colours…: La joie de vivre

An ode to animated representations of sexual desire with La joie de vivre section of the special programme on erotica.

As part of the special programme Erotic Animation: Tastes and Colours…, the Festival brings you some carnal respite with a selection of sexy shorts.

With La joie de vivre, (the title of a short dating back to 1934 that illustrates an aerial ballet by two disrobed nymphs), take pleasure in films that playfully and sometimes sarcastically celebrate sexual desire. You’ll enjoy a whimsical version of Snow White, interpreted by the first icon of erotica on the screen, Betty Boop (Betty Boop in Snow White, 1933); the idyll of a bashful princess who finds refuge in an introverted musician’s bass cello case (Story of the Bass Cello, 1949); Kim Noce extol the erotic Shakespeare  in love in Idleness, and an erotic and musical fantasy with Carnival of Animals (2006).

These fanciful and unconventional shorts can be seen as a declaration of love for ecstasy and pleasure.

The myriad of issues that surround human sexuality have inspired artists of all kinds down through the ages. The unique properties inherent in animation offer up a near boundless array of choices to continue the exploration of one of humankind’s most elemental driving forces. Tracking from the forensically authentic to the near abstract – with a fair bit in between – this inspired collection of films brings to the screen a varied study of nudity explored in ways that only animation can visualise.

The film ideas were developed during workshops supported by the Cultural Institute at King’s College London.
‘Love in Idleness’ it is a short animated film exploring the fleeting delusional love relationship between Titania and Bottom.The film focuses on the transformation and transfiguration of the two characters in the act of a frantic lovemaking. Scratchy animated lines, morphed body parts, fragments of flesh intersect and crash together into the crude rhythmical act performed by the deluded donkey and the tricked woman. There is no story, no time and no roles: only raw emotions and sensations.
