Feminist Porn Director Searches for Icelandic Talent

Award-winning Spanish pornographic film director Lola Clavo is searching for actors to work on an erotic film that it is hoped will be filmed in Iceland.

“I am not looking for professional actors. It could be someone with experience or without it. Just someone who is comfortable with being filmed,” Lola told Gay Iceland, adding, “My only real condition is that the performers identify as queer.”

Lola says Iceland has a beautiful landscape and great quality of light, especially at night. “Iceland has really inspired my erotic writing,” she says, complementing the country.

Clavo has won prizes for her work, including the PorYes award for feminist porn in 2013.

Asked if pornography and feminism are not incompatible, she says it is part of the “post-porn” movement which sees erotica in a different light. “There are many kinds of feminism and I don’t agree with all of them. I am a pro-sex feminist,” DV reported.

Supreme Court barrister Vilhjálmur Hans Vilhjálmsson, has come forth reminding people that it is illegal to shoot pornography in Iceland, “Whether feminist porn, or any other sort of porn.”

He admits, however, that it can be tricky to define what is, and what is not, pornography.

Lola Clavo is currently residing in the West Fjords village of Hólmavík for its documentary film festival.
