CineKink Season Opener!
"Do. It. Again." CineKink originally presented 'Secretary' as our Tribute selection during the very first CineKink NYC in 2003. Has it really been 15 years since its release? Indeed, it has… and high time to rewatch this BDSM classic in the company of like-minded kinksters! In case you've forgotten ... Lee Holloway has a few strikes against her when she applies for a secretarial position at the law office of E. Edward Grey. At first the work seems quite normal but soon, in between typing, filing and coffee making, Lee and Mr. Grey embark on a more personal relationship together, crossing the lines of conduct that would give any human resource director the vapors!
We'll have a some props handy, so we can recreate a few scenes on the red carpet after the show. And in deference to the festival director's well-documented suit fetish, feel free to dress as dapper as you please! (Gentlemen and ladies alike!)

And then...
Wednesday, March 15 – 9:30 PM
US Premiere!
Karen, a 50-year-old father and former teacher, is currently training with an American cowboy for her transformation into a horse. In this form of roleplay, known as pony play, Karen dresses up as a “horse-being,” and as she undergoes physical training for dressage and pulling a cart, the boundary between reality and fantasy begins to blur. A poetic reflection on humanity, gender, life, love and nature. (Directed by Jérôme Clément-Wilz, 2015, France, 63 minutes.)
preceded by
Investigative reporter Travis Dollymop rips the cover off the sex camp industry, sure that he's uncovered a multinational conspiracy that bilks horny middle-aged men out of their money!

Philip, with Admiral Frazier, Crucible Mike, Nicole, Enfield Mike, Blackthorne and Lord Byron Scattsworth III. World premiere.)

By The People: 25 Years Of Community Archiving at Leather Archives & Museum
Illustrates the rise of The Leather Archives & Museum (LA&M), from a co-founder's Midwestern basement to the professional institution it is today…all thanks to the ongoing efforts of those within the communities that LA&M represents. Demonstrates how professional archiving and public display of alternative sex and culture materials are acts of activism, and a path toward ending the stigma and shame that many in mainstream society often seek to place on those with kinky inclinations. (Directed by Christina Court, 2016, USA, 39 minutes. World premiere.)
More info:
