Dance Films Kino Presents: Searah Deysach (4-5 pm)
In the 1970’s, the word kino was used to describe cinemas in New York City’s Times Square that showed another type of illicit movie: pornography. Searah Deysach, founder and owner of Early to Bed, Chicago’s first woman-owned sex shop, gives a talk on porn made by women for women and why that’s a feminist issue.
