Friday, June 21, 8pm: The Artist & The Pervert
Georg Friedrich Haas is a famous Austrian composer & 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” & muse, he is her master – a combination that pushes many people’s buttons & touches on matters of race, sexuality, politics & power relations. This film documents their lives between perversion, art, love & radical self-determination. [INFO & RESERVATION]

Tell me how you loved me, so I understand how to love. Together, a filmmaker and her characters venture into a personal research about intimacy. On the fluid border between reality and fiction, TOUCH ME NOT follows the emotional journeys of Laura, Tomas and Christian, offering a deeply empathic insight into their lives. Craving for intimacy yet also deeply afraid of it, they work to overcome old patterns, defense mechanisms and taboos, to cut the cord and finally be free. TOUCH ME NOT looks at how we can find intimacy in the most unexpected ways, at how to love another without losing ourselves. [INFO & RESERVATION]
