Trouser Bar dir. Kristen Bjorn, UK 2016, 20min
With Hans Berlin, Scott Hunter, Denholm Spurr, Zac Renfree, Ashley Ryder and Craig Daniel.
BFI Flare is proud to present the world premiere of the eagerly awaited Trouser Bar.
Once attributed to a noted British theatrical star, the script of this short but controversial erotic fantasy was in the collection of the late Peter de Rome, a festival favourite, who attended several times to discuss his own work as an erotic film-maker. Following de Rome’s death two years ago producer David McGillivray embarked on something of a personal crusade to make the film as a tribute to Peter. Set in a gentlemen’s outfitters c. 1976 the film takes its inspiration from the emotions aroused by a fetishistic love of corduroy, leather and tight trousers. Noted porn director Kristen Bjorn and a cast of professional erotic performers star alongside some gifted amateurs. The cameos include Barry Cryer, Julian Clary, Miss Hope Springs, Nigel Havers and some other strangely familiar faces. Join some of the cast and crew for their first time seeing the film on the big screen and an on-stage discussion.
