THIS IS THE WAY WE LIKE IT
A BDSM Short Film, 2015
Juxtaposing humour and sexuality, 'The Couple' enjoy disco, dancing & BDSM; exploring a very British secrecy, and the freedom that can come from anonymity. This short experiment film accompanied Liberty Antonia's critical essay 'Food, Films & Fucking' and created in protest to the changes to the R18 [Communications Act 2003] laws in the UK, December 2014; the list acts banned includes: "spanking, caning, aggressive whipping, humiliation, face sitting and female ejaculation…" (Heather Saul, ‘UK porn legislation: What is now banned under new government laws’, The Independent). The changes to the law have been, understandably, interpreted as sexist.
Directed by Liberty Antonia Sadler
