Storyline

A young woman leaves behind the underground kink clubs of New York City and enters the world of commodified BDSM, where workers are paid to embody the sexual and psychological fantasies of complete strangers. When an unscrupulous night manager asks the woman -- now working under the pseudonym Mistress Remedy -- to session with dominant clients, where she is the slave for the hour, she accepts. She soon realizes that her "habitual" submissiveness at home does not prepare her for the pressures and risks of this side of the sexual service industry. Should she leave? Or should she stay and prove to everyone -- including herself -- that she can handle it? A hybrid of creative biography and narrative fiction, REMEDY is based on director Cheyenne Picardo's experiences working as a pro-switch in New York City. The film explores the good, the bad, the offensive, the cruel, the hysterical, and the absurd aspects of commercial BDSM. It provides insight without passing judgment, but only as fast ...

Trivia

All session scenes are based on actual sessions involving the writer/director. Names, ages, ethnicities, etc. of clients were altered, but the dramatizations of the action itself was kept as close to real events as possible. The dungeon employees, however, are not based on specific people, but more on the types of workers Picardo encountered. See more »

Quotes

Remedy: By definition, it's out of your control. That's what makes it an addiction. If it was within your control, it would be a choice.
Mistress Nedra: You're such a bottom.
Remedy: Sorry.

User Reviews

 
Nuanced, edgy, artful
4 October 2016 | by See all my reviews

An artfully framed study of the subversion of feelings and their deviant expression, explicitly in the world of BDSM - though not overtly or particularly sexual.

This is a subtly told, at once playful and edgy little film with some nuanced performances, but most particularly Kira Davies as our protagonist Remedy.

Engaging moody and well crafted camera-work plus an evocative driving soundtrack.

Well worth a viewing if you have a penchant for anything indie, original and/or underground.
