Community Action Center, a sociosexual 1970s porn-romance-liberation film, is being screened tonight at Fluxx.

The film promises everyone's favorite parts of porn: pizza delivery, metallic body paint, and, of course, a dungeon.

But, this isn't your average "pizza guy shows up and decides to hop on a sex swing" kind of film. It also examines group dynamics in a semi-proffessional setting. No, really.

A synopsis from mubi.com says the film examines a place where community relations are both politically and sexually charged. The title's "Community Action" implies both lubed-up orgies and community activism:

Sex, sexuality and the complexities of gendered bodies are inherently political. This project is a small archive of an intergenerational community built on collaboration, friendship, sex and art. The work attempts to explore a consideration of feminist fashion, sexual aesthetics and an expansive view of what is defined as ‘sex’. Directors Burns and Steiner worked with artists and performers who created infinitely complex gender and performance roles that are both real and fantastical, set to a soundtrack of music culled from the worldwide sisterhood.

Filmmakers A.L. Steiner and A.K. Burns will be at the screening and participating in a discussion after the film. Afterwards, attendees are encouraged to join Steiner and Burns next door for 10% off at Art du Vin.

The film lasts 69 (ha!) minutes and will start at 8 p.m. Tickets range from $5-$10.
