Winner of the Audience Choice Award for Best Narrative Feature at CineKink NYC/2010, S&M Judge will be the centerpiece for the opening night of CineKink: Chicago, running November 19-20 at the Leather Archives and Museum.

Directed by Flemish filmmaker Erik Lamens and based on a celebrated Belgian incident, the film tells of a respected judge who, desperate to save his marriage, reluctantly gives in to fulfilling the masochistic desires his wife has been hiding from him for decades. Initially shocked at her revelation, his love helps him overcome his inhibitions, and they begin to enjoy a secret life in the city’s underground S/M scene. But when the two are caught up in a police sting, his arrest and trial cause a national scandal. While their activities have been purely consensual, the court views his participation as criminal, putting his job, reputation and family life in jeopardy.

S&M Judge will screen on Friday, November 19th, 8:00 pm, and will be followed by an opening reception made possible by the support of Shibaricon.

CineKink: Chicago will continue the next day, with matinee screenings beginning at 2 pm, and will conclude with ‘The Best of CineKink/2010,’ a program of the year’s award-winning shorts, scheduled for 8:30 pm on Saturday.

More info on the Chicago screenings is available here – or you can purchase advance tickets directly via EventBrite.
