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

The split screen used in the session with The Actor was inspired by Hal Ashby's editing in "The Thomas Crown Affair," which Picardo saw the week she struggled with editing the scene. Rather than having each shot portray a simultaneous action, each camera represented the perspectives of the character's in the fantasy. See more »

Quotes

Client: I don't know if you knew this but I'm a married man, as far as marriage goes in our cultural... structure... I love my wife. I've always loved my wife. At some point she stopped loving me, and I don't know why. I want to make unrequited love obsolete, or at the very least... illegal.

User Reviews

 
Nuanced, edgy, artful
4 October 2016 | by nikspitzSee 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.
