(NEW YORK, NY) -- CineKink has announced that the world premiere of Remedy will be the "Season Opener" selection for its tenth anniversary film festival, CineKink NYC, running February 26-March 3, 2013.
A psychological drama based on writer/director Cheyenne Picardo's personal experience, Remedy follows a woman into the dungeons of New York City and the world of professional domination and submission. There, entering the business almost on a lark, she takes on the fantasies of her clients, all the while exploring her own desires, and discovering some very real physical and emotional limits along the way.
"I'm hoping to demystify professional BDSM in a way that's personal and accessible by showing it through the eyes of someone discovering that scene for herself," said Picardo, who hopes that the film "humanizes the people who do this work, showing the perks and the pitfalls of exchanging money for fantasy."
"Remedy is precisely the type of film we exist for, and it feels very fitting to have it open our milestone, tenth season," said Lisa Vandever, co-founder and director of CineKink. "Cheyenne has done an amazing job at creating a colorful yet sympathetic look at some of the characters that inhabit the city's kinky landscape, conveying both the fun and self-discovery that can be found within it, and the importance of knowing where your trust is best placed."
Starring newcomer Kira Davies in the title role, Remedy will screen on Wednesday, February 27, 7:00 PM at Anthology Film Archives (32 Second Avenue, NYC), where the majority of CineKink NYC's festival screenings are also unfolding.
CineKink NYC kicks off the previous evening, Tuesday, February 26, with a gala fundraising kick-off party, and runs through Sunday, March 3, concluding with an awards ceremony and an AfterGlow closing party.
