Mascara Film Club


Mascara Film Club is an intermittent artist-run film club, which takes place in a bar in North-East London. We screen artists’ moving image in more convivial contexts, batting our lashes to the rhythm of the unexpected, the seductive, the challenging, the political, the overlooked and the underseen.  

Mascara Film Club is organised by Rufus Rock,  Daisy Smith and Kasia Lukasik.

1 – 28 April 2021
Location: Online

Programme: 
Maintenancer, Sidsel Meineche Hansen & Therese Henningsen, 2018



We are pleased to present an online screening of Mainenancer (2018) a film by Sidsel Meineche Hansen and Therese Henningsen.

Maintenancer explores sex work and the maintenance of sex dolls in the German brothel Bordoll. Based on interviews with dominatrix, founder and madame, Evelyn Schwarz, and her assistant it documents the initial transitions into post-human prostitution, where sex work shifts from the physical body of the sex worker onto the sex doll or robot, with the doll as an interlocutor, whose dead weight demands regular lifting, disinfection and repair.

Thank you to Evelyn Schwarz, dominatrix, founder and madame at Bordoll and her assistant (anonymous).
