Queer Porn Auteur Directs The Knife’s Latest Video

Marit Östberg brings gender-bending, S&M realness in “Full of Fire.”

Swedish queer feminist porn director Marit Östberg made the nearly-10-minute video for The Knife’s “Full of Fire,” the danceable first single from the electro-pop duo’s upcoming album Shaking the Habitual. The thing is jam-packed with gender-bending of all persuasions — from lipstick- and blush-covered punk boys to a provocative scene where a female army officer seduces a lady Occupy protestor. There’s S&M, there’s voyeurism and even a little water sports — everything you’d expect from an auteur who made a name for herself directing 2009’s Dirty Diaries, a compilation of 13 queer pornographic short films that promote “orgasms and art in films for the open adult mind.” So open your mind and watch this one. It’s sexy!
