Rubis Collective is a recently founded French-Brazilian queer artistic collective aiming to create sexually explicit artwork. Their goal is to rewrite the sexuality in a context, on the expression of a desire, in a narrative. On Sunday, May 5 their first film RubiX premiered. You can watch the trailer here.
“RubiX, is like an essay on pornography, with a non-linear narrative and a dreamlike aesthetic, paying tribute to past homoerotic figures (Genet’s sailor, Tom of Finland’s leatherman, Derek Jarman’s St. Sebastian…), all of that mixed on a mosaic of more contemporary porno-tropes. The film is not actually representative of what we want to do with the narrative side of our films, especially because it is completely centered on the sexual act, but it represents our influences, our tribute to the history of pornography and gay sexual representation. It is starred by Pierre Emö and Guillaume Wayne, both actors that we found on social media (Twitter and a big story involving Planet Romeo).”
