CANCELLED -Folkestone Documentary Festival: Birds Eye View presents Passion

PASSION is an intensely personal film about longing, healing, and belonging where filmmaker Maja Borg illustrates their unique process of dealing with trauma in the wake of a destructive relationship.

Unfortunately, we have had to cancel the Folkestone Documentary Festival screening of Passion. Due to the challenging nature of the film and the graphic depictions included in the documentary, we cannot show the film in accordance with licencing regulations.

In seeking to reclaim intimacy and re-establish boundaries Borg is drawn to queer BDSM practice, through which they’re able to explore their long-forgotten Christian heritage. Adopting rituals and play from both queer BDSM and Christian communities, Borg finds themselves able to acknowledge and accept their own longings, confronting their darkest parts in order to move forwards.

The film tells the stories of queer BDSM practitioners in Berlin, Stockholm and Barcelona and portrays the humanity at the heart of the practise while illuminating its similarities with Christianity on an emotional and perhaps even spiritual level.

PASSION is screened in partnership with Birds Eye View
