Erotiek en de oudheid & Satyricon
Classic scholar Emilie van Opstall introduces Fellini’s Satyricon with a talk (in Dutch) on the ‘most beautiful of all immortal gods’. Fellini transformed Petronius’ satirical novel into an overwhelming portrait of uninhibited pre-Christian times, before eroticism came to burdened by a New Testament sense of shame.
The erotica collection of Eye Filmmuseum includes no fewer than a thousand titles, but they are rarely taken off the shelf. Cinema Erotica brushes aside cinematic decorum to present an ode to lust featuring historical curios, films by contemporary artists, talks and musical performances.
