The Artist & The Pervert
CineKink Season Opener!
An intimate, documentary look at Georg Friedrich Haas, a famous Austrian composer and child of Nazi parents, and his wife, Mollena Williams-Haas, a renowned American kink educator and descendant of African slaves. Together they live in a public, kinky relationship. She is his “slave” and muse, he is her “master” – a combination that pushes many people’s buttons and touches on matters of race, sexuality, politics and power relations.
“Mollena has been a long-time fixture of the New York kink community, and a CineKink alumni filmmaker, and we’re delighted to put her, and her husband, Georg, front and center. Their relationship is a poignant example of the loving give and take that can be found in a consensual BDSM relationship. And the reaction of the world around them, as they make that aspect public, speaks to the profound discomfort that still surrounds both race and sexuality in our society.”
Lisa Vandever – CineKink Co-Founder/Director
