Alexxxei’s programme:
When you see an X in the title of the festival, you know what to do. You go through all the good films about human physical interaction and pile them up in a program. Some of them are about having sex, some of them are about not having sex, some are about love, puberty or just booty. Not all are experimental, but all work well in their own way. Enjoy the ride!
