Artists A.K. Burns and A.L. Steiner have created a collaborative film project called Community Action Center that features the work and stories of many talented artists, musicians, and other members of various queer communities.
Burns and Steiner are currently raising funds to compensate their contributors and tour the work across the U.S. We hope you will consider helping them out! They are halfway to their fundraising goal, which must be reached by December 21.
Community Action Center has already been screened internationally at venues such as Toronto’s Pleasure Dome and London’s Tate Modern. Here is more about the project:
A.K. Burns and A.L. Steiner’s Community Action Center is a 69-minute sociosexual video incorporating the erotics of a community where the personal is not only political, but sexual. This project is a unique contemporary composition, an archive of an intergenerational community built on collaboration, friendship, sex and art. 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 by Chicks on Speed, Effi Briest, Electrelane, Chateau featuring K8 Hardy, Lesbians on Ecstasy, Light Asylum, MEN, Motherland, NGUZUNGUZU, I.U.D. (Lizzi Bougatsos & Sadie Laska), Kinski and Thee Majesty (Genesis P-Orridge), and featuring original compositions by Justin Bond, Nick Hallett & Sam Greenleaf Miller, Ashland Mines & Wu Tsang, Sergei Tcherepnin and Tri-State Area with AV Linton.
