LOOK OUT FOR THE ARTIST AND THE PERVERT IN 2018!
Recently, I decided to take upon a monthly film campaign challenge, and had searched multiple crowdfunding websites to find something that would pique my interest. There are a lot of campaigns that were pretty interesting, but when I stumbled across The Artist and the Pervert, I was immediately invested. It has everything I am interested in: Art, sex, politics, and humor. And it seems very timely…Oh so timely.
KINK! COMEDY! POLITICS!
The feature documentary debut of Berlin-based filmmakers Beatrice Behn and Rene Gebhardt, The Artist and the Pervert explores the unlikely relationship of Mollena Williams-Haas- an America kink educator, artist, author and performer; and Georg Friedrich Haas- a famous, highly-acclaimed Austrian composer. Mollena is a descendant of slaves, Georg is the son of Nazi parents. Together, they defy societal conventions and live in a very public kinky relationship. How did Georg and Mollena- two individuals from very different parts of society come together? In a New York Times article last year, the couple came out to the public about the unusual nature of their relationship. It is a relationship that enjoys the ecstasy of a dominant-submissive power dynamic, and embraces the role of the artist and the muse. This documentary will bring some interesting conversations surrounding race, sex, feminism, and politics in modern society.
Following the campaign, The Artist and the Pervert will continue post-production and go on a festival tour in 2018. Really looking forward to the completion of this project! Congratulations to the team!
