Blue in Black and White

On 25th October, I went to our National Film and Sound Archive to a lecture and presentation called, “Blue in Black and White” by Prof Jill Julius Matthews from the Australian National University.

Australia’s erotic history does not often generate serious study. The lecture included film clips from the period 1890s to 1970s. It was a joyful experience of fun images of playful bawdy sexual visual jokes that delighted in the absurdity of sex.

My descriptions of the film clips contain explicit erotic content. Do not download if you are under 18 or if explicit sexuality offends you.
