Hot Docs Edition: The Artist and the Pervert

Directors: Beatrice Behn & René Gebhardt

Alissa sits down with directors Beatrice Behn & René Gebhardt. Their film is The Artist & The Pervert. A documentary about the a famous Austrian composer & a renowned African-American Kink Educator & how they fall in love and start a controversial journey toward radical self-determination that touches on matters of race, sexuality, politics & power relations. Some call them perverted, others revolutionary.

This film pushed my boundaries about BDSM culture and relationships. I truly enjoyed sitting down with Beatrice & Rene. It was apparent how passionate they are about educating about the BDSM lifestyle. What I enjoyed about this interview was how at a loss of words I was and how patient Beatrice & René were with my questions.

The Artist & The Pervert is screening at Hot Docs 2018. The last screening is May 4, 2018 @ 6:30 pm @ the Hart House Theatre. Click here to purchase tickets.
