"Liberty in Restraint" is a look at freedom of expression and the daring to follow one's visions, this documentary follows fetish photographer, Noel Graydon, in his quest for authenticity, showing his work in progress, a passion for his art and its themes, and the transgressive activities of the community he moves within. The film also investigates the nature of sexual transgression, the prejudices of society and how an artist can break boundaries. Further themes arise out of the nature of Noel's work in fetish photography, exploring what the BDSM community is all about, details of the fetish items such as leather, latex, rope, chains, etc and how this is becoming increasingly prevalent in the world of advertising, music and fashion.

I find real abuse dark. I find real fetish very light. In fact the amount of dark images that I've done with fetish are minimal because I'm actually trying to show the light and the beauty and the love. I've always been trying to show how love is expressed in a fetish context because I think that's what the untrained eye misses.

"Simply the best documentary on BDSM" says Annie Sprinkle
"Liberty in Restraint is simply the best documentary on BDSM, and the people that practice and enjoy it, that I've ever seen. It's totally engrossing, absolutely authentic, and well done. Worth watching for the fetish clothing alone. But best of all is how deeply director Michael Ney dives into the real life and psyche of its main subject, Noel Graydon - something rarely seen in sex documentaries. This film is a classy sex classic." from: Annie Sprinkle, Ph.D. "Queen of Kink" turned Artist and Sexologist
"An unashamedly heart-felt documentary that attempts to find the big heart throbbing deep within the most hardcore of sexual expressions." Julian Shaw - FILMINK Magazine
"A fascinating program that provides much insight into the nature of BDSM and the communities involved. It's style is frank and revelatory but also refreshingly non- judgmental." Tony Mitchell - Skin Two #52
"A phenomenally shot and beautiful representation of a fetish photographer." Lisa Vandever, director, CineKink Film Festival, New York
