t seems that pain and pleasure should lie at opposite ends of the emotional scale, and yet – like the most subversive bodily practices – they are much closer than they might seem. Like shibari, BDSM practices have become an essential part of sexual pop culture and have been largely – if limited to repetitive rituals – appropriated by the mainstream. We are more than happy to introduce artists working in areas of BDSM culture, that develop both its visual codes and enrich the resulting fields of interpretation with further meanings. Among the films shown in this section, you’ll be able to see high-budget art-gallery strategies (e.g., Roberta Eagle’s OINK!, originally screened as a three-channel), as well as films from the Brazilian “Kill porn stars” label, whose productions are often based on radical honesty and lack of budget. You’ll see everything that an independent BDSM culture lately has to say and offer. Although it’s not yet a full, latex outfit – it’s enough to start with the fun.
