Storyline

"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.

Quotes

Noel Graydon: In terms of the transition from photographer into BDSM master, I don't know that was maybe about six to nine months. I spent a very intensive time with some professional mistresses who were prepared to take me into their keep and to train me. I was very, very comfortable with the idea of professional sex if you like. I realised that it would expose me to a far greater range of people with varying fetishes rather than if I was just a player out on the fetish scene encountering people as you do ...

Interesting look at one man's art and journey in and around the fetish scene
7 September 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

For me the documentary stands out for both its humanity and its non sensationalist look at the fetish/BDSM scene. Noel Graydon's story and art are artfully interwoven with the world of fetish, showing the play scenes and environment which has inspired much of Noel's work. The commentary from various scene players is intelligent and articulate. The only downside for me was a little too much emphasis on play piercing. Whilst its graphically very interesting and a "wow" factor I find needles a bit yukky. There again some may find scenes such as the flogging one not to their taste. However the play scenes are just a small component of the documentary. Its worth seeing for many things but the stand out part for me is the documentation of "Suffer the Children", Noel's statement against the hypocrisy of the Catholic Church.
