CineKink Season Opener!
SECRETARY: 15TH ANNIVERSARY
“Do. It. Again.” Has it really been 15 years since the release of “Secretary”? Indeed, it has – and high time to rewatch this BDSM classic in the company of like-minded kinksters! In case you’ve forgotten the basics: Lee Holloway has a few strikes against her when she applies for a secretarial position at the law office of E. Edward Grey. At first the work seems quite normal but soon in between typing, filing and coffee making, Lee and Mr. Grey embark on a more personal relationship together, crossing the lines of conduct that would give any human resource director the vapors! (Directed by Steven Shainberg, 2002, USA, 104 minutes. Stars Maggie Gyllenhaal, James Spader, Lesley Ann Warren and Jeremy Davies.)

HORSE-BEING
Karen, a 50-year-old former teacher and father of a daughter, is currently training with an American cowboy for her transformation into a horse. In this form of roleplay, known as pony play, Karen dresses up as a “horse-being,” and as she undergoes physical training for dressage and pulling a cart, the boundary between reality and fantasy begins to blur. A poetic reflection on humanity, gender, life, love and nature.
(Directed by Jérôme Clément-Wilz, 2015, France, 63 minutes. US premiere.)

SEX AND THE SILVER GAYS
Amidst their flurry of elderly activities, the members of NYPrimeTimers also actively participate in monthly sex parties. These octogenarian orgiasts invite us to their intimate gatherings, explicitly illustrate their carnal activities, and explain to us who they are, their own shared histories, and what it means to their lives to share joyful, consensual sexual celebrations together for a long as may be possible. A great lesson for us all!

A subculture within Amsterdam nightlife, Club Church offers freedom, unprecedented sex and apparent absence of judgment. Yet exploring the club, the film director finds himself pushing against his own personal boundaries as he explore its liberties, bringing out a side of himself he didn’t know existed.

(Directed by Robin Vogel, 2016, The Netherlands, 54 minutes. US premiere.) Plays with the short film GUILLAUME MASTURBATES (Patrick Aubert, 2017, Canada, 3 minutes.)
