Dam'd Docs: The Artist & The Pervert
Mollena Williams-Haas is an influential Black American sex educator. Her husband Georg Friedrich Haas is a celebrated Austrian composer and the child of Nazi parents. The two live in an openly sadomasochistic relationship, with Mollena acting as Georg's slave and artistic muse. Their provocative partnership challenges the public to confront the nuances of race, power, and sexual intimacy. René Gebhardt & Beatrice Behn's candid documentary tells a tender and surprisingly wholesome love story where the rituals of consensual kink are embedded in the mundane routines of married life. Unflinching but optimistic, the film shows how Georg and Mollena negotiate personal and political histories to build an unusual creative collaboration. Watch the trailer.
Directed by René Gebhardt & Beatrice Behn, 2018, Germany/USA/Austria, 96 minutes. In English.
