The Artist & The Pervert Trailer

"Some call them perverted. Others, revolutionary." What do we have here? The first trailer has debuted for a new documentary titled The Artist & The Pervert, from filmmakers Beatrice Behn (who also is editor-in-chief of German film website & René Gebhardt. This edgy, provocative film profiles the relationship between George, a famous Austrian composer, and his wife Mollena, a renowned American kink educator. After 40 years of looking for the right person, they finally found each other, and live happily in a BDSM slave/master relationship. This film documents their lives between perversion, art, love and radical self-determination, challenging our pre-conceived feelings towards this kind of relationship. This is just a teaser trailer, our first glimpse, but I'm very curious about it. I like docs that challenge me to be more open.

Georg Friedrich Haas is a famous Austrian composer and child of Nazi parents, his wife Mollena a renowned American kink educator and descendant of African slaves. Together they live in a public kinky relationship they have craved for 40 years: 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. This film documents their lives between perversion, art, love and radical self-determination. The Artist & The Pervert is co-directed by German filmmakers Beatrice Behn & René Gebhardt, making their feature debut. This first premiered at the Thessaloniki Documentary Film Festival last month, and will play at Hot Docs and a few other fests. No other release plans have been set yet. Visit their official website.

Great combination, I must say ...

Well Bo, I was more referring to a possible combination of those elements outside of the context of this film. To elaborate that would take too much time here. But, in short, I think that perversion has many different levels and what is perverse for some people is not at the same time for others. Good exploration of that would be interesting. And that's something we won't get from this film. As for shy, not really. Although, I wouldn't try just anything. Cheers ...

Hey @dawisebuddha:disqus, could you possibly throw NSFW flags on stuff like this....although maybe the title should've been a

Don't know what's NSFW about this? There's no nudity in the trailer... Definitely does not deserve the NSFW tag. And if you read that it's a doc about a "pervert" I think you are intelligent enough to choose not to watch it at work, just to be safe. But yeah, I don't think NSFW is necessary unless it has full-on nudity.

Well, she does pull his pants down at some point in the trailer and the second poster was pretty risque, but yep, lesson learned.

Right, but it is a very sensible, green band trailer. I hear you... If it really deserved a NSFW tag, I'd put it, but this doesn't and we rarely post trailers that do (even red band trailers are fairly tame these days).

I'm a have to pass.

"The most important living composer"? Oh, please! What nonsense right there.

Will be interesting to see how they explain the power exchange in a M/s relationship, versus the ill-informed monstrosity of the 50 Shades series.
