PASSION (2021, 96 min)
A film about longing, healing and belonging. Adopting rituals and play from queer BDSM practice and their own Christian heritage, filmmaker Maja Borg seeks to reclaim intimacy and re-establish boundaries in the wake of a destructive relationship. Through stories of queer BDSM communities, Borg portrays the humanity at the heart of the practise, illuminating its similarities with Christianity.
