“She wears a collar that defines their master/slave relationship
— and what an unexpectedly tender one it is,
marked by collaboration and deep emotional bonds
that go beyond bondage. The film is surprisingly sweet
and instructive (and occasionally naughty).”
“In their debut film, Beatrice Behn and René Gebhardt
are expanding the public forum on which the Williams-Haas
couple is encouraging the free development of art and love
and is breaking down deep-rooted prejudices.”
“Billed as a frank look at a range of topics including race, sexuality,
politics and power dynamics, The Artist & the Pervert
is a provocative exploration of how the pair
navigate the particular challenges of their alternative lives.”
