Fetish and BDSM Film Tip: RemedyThe dominatrix “Mistress Remedy” is the subject of the fetish-themed film Remedy–a true-life story from the world of fetishes. “Traumkino Kiel” has provided some copy to whet your appetite:In this New York-set movie the woman in question starts a job at a sex-work-studio under the moniker “Mistress Remedy”. As a dominatrix she has to cater to the varied wishes of her clientele and encounters many diverse strangers — repulsive freaks as well as interesting guys. While practicing her unique profession, every once in a while she worries something dangerous might happen. But sometimes she also gets the notion she could meet up privately with her clients outside the studio. But is a BDSM studio the right place to meet the man of your dreams?Cheyenne Picardo has lived through everything that happens in the movie Remedy (in the exact same or in a similar fashion). The period of her life she spent working this job was extremely intense, with lasting effects until today, and in Remedy she processes it all. A lot of people helped her finance the film, among other things through crowdfunding (a means of collecting money from interested third parties). The finished film depicts a dark, dingy world. “Take a Walk on the Wild Side” as Lou Reed would say. The film premiered at New York’s Cinekink festival, where Remedy promptly garnered the audience choice award. But Germany is the first country to theatrically release the movie, starting January 22, 2015.And so Remedy is linked to other independent movies currently adding diversity to the screen, such as Ulrich Seidl’s “Im Keller” and the critical escort-movie Top Girl out of Berlin.
