Antonio Da Silva – filmmaker

Antonio_Da_Silva_picI am an award-winning Portuguese artist filmmaker currently doing a residency at Tom of Finland Foundation. With the objective of combining my interests in cinema, performance and visual arts, I undertook two master degrees in London, the first in Fine Arts at Central Saint Martins and the second in Dance for the Screen at The Place – London Contemporary Dance School. Experimenting is the core of my work, I am interested in exploring different artistic genres, both in terms of technique and content.

My practice is driven by daily routines and personal experiences. I have always been fascinated by male sex and sexuality. I became increasingly frustrated with how moving image explored this and have begun to make it the subject of my films over the last four years. My films explore such topics as cruising and public sex, internet hook ups and performance. I do not consider myself a pornographer but a filmmaker who uses my background to choreograph short films with explicit sex themes.

My films are regularly screened at festivals worldwide.

ALL–IN | ISSUE 2 — Harmony

The second issue of ALL–IN is about bringing people together. Everyone has a right to be heard — all we need is the space and time to hear one another. It’s more than you, me, or them. It’s about us.
