Today, everyone knows ... SM is called sado-masochism, 1960 I did not know it We were looking forward to the premiere of the new documentary film by Ralph Sartorius, and Gerhard Stahl with the somewhat unwieldy title "Today everyone knows ... SM is called sado-masochism, 1960 I did not know it"
Documentary (BRD/2011) by Gerhard Stahl & Ralph Sartorius,
Gerhard Stahl with the documentary "We live ... SM" receive a great deal of attention in the German-speaking world. Especially in the SM scene, but also various festivals, the film was shown and has received mostly positive reviews. He is an experienced documentary filmmaker and lecturer at the College of Media in Stuttgart.
Ralph Sartorius, however, has delivered with "Today everyone knows ..." a remarkable debut as a filmmaker. His artistic work is mainly in the area of experimental, electronic music expression.
Gerhard Stahl wanted to make a second documentary about BDSM and Ralph Sartorius, had the idea, storyboard and presentation and they came through the mediation of the musician Carlos Peron, who had worked with both, together.
For this film, Ralph Kieling and Gerhard Stahl have been fortunate to have the 72-year-old Ingrid U. found a willing partner and open interview. She tells about the first steps with her husband with BDSM games in the 60s. On joint developments, difficulties and great asset in her life and marriage, with the acting out their sadomasochistic passion.
An interesting and personal insight into a time without the Internet or a variety of services to events, venues, shops and communities around the issue of fetishism and BDSM. In addition to the stories about the beautiful and Ingrid's long marriage, her husband's passion travesty, I would have also liked some answers to direct questions about their experiences as a dominant woman at that time.
Another film with the teamwork of Gerhard Stahl and Ralph Sartorius, would certainly be a nice continuation and as I have learned, is a yes next, very interesting documentation in its planning.
