“Unique and hilarious... (a) rapid fire assault on the viewer's sense of good taste and sanity” - Charlie Hobbs, TWITCHFILM

Your parents are asleep and something is in the air; the time is ripe to get reacquainted with your favourite video store’s forbidden section. Prepare yourself for a steamy evening with Fantasia when we present this tribute to erotic cinema. The naughty night begins with the psychedelic
, a sensational succession of sexy snippets reconstituted as a sci-fi saga.

Earth is in a state of panic. An international wave of fornication has shattered the rules of decency. Men and women all over the world are shamelessly giving in to their most basic primal urges. People are doing it at the hairdresser’s, at the pool or even during dinner. While certainly alluring, the situation is quickly becoming alarming. The economy is plummeting and culture is taking a beating. The scientific community can find but one cause of this phenomenon: a shady individual has taken possession of the Ultra-Sex (no, we’re not saying what that is) and escaped in space. Here begins a cheap interstellar odyssey in which nobody’s clothes stay on for very long. A delirious homage to a marginalized cinema, this montage of pornographic peccadilloes wisely juxtaposes the absurd with the salacious. And with the, shall we say, unusual dubbing, this festival favourite has it all.

The screening will be followed by a rare appearance by Gérard Kikoïne, French director of “films d'amour” featuring iconic X stars Brigitte Lahaie and Marilyn Jess. Having just published his memoir, “Kikobook,” the industry pioneer will revisit his singular life path and discuss his collaborations with Oliver Reed, Anthony Perkins and Abel Gance. During this round-table talk, he will reveal all his behind-the-scenes secrets and share his passion for Ultra-Sex!
