We are delighted that Hakalax Productions agreed to us showing KINBAKU - The Art of Bondage (2009) during the film night and allowed us to offer DVD’s of their documentary:

Kinbaku, “tight binding”, is a Japanese style of bondage which involves tying up the bottom using simple yet visually intricate patterns, with several pieces of rope usually hemp or jute. In Shinto religion, in order to make something sacred, man will tie a rope around it. This sacred quality of the tying can be applied also to Kinbaku, which is an erotic, spiritual, artistic connection between the people who are doing it. It started with samurais capturing enemies on battlefield 500 years ago. “Rope is an extension of arms and communication tool. Two people can really be close and have emotional exhange”, says rope master Osada Steve from Tokyo. Osada Steve is student of Haruki Yukimura, a rope master who has tied over 3000 people during his life. “If you look at the Japanese samurai armor, it’s tied on. If you’ve ever received a Japanese gift, it’s an exquisite thing”, says Asagi Ageha, the most popular star of the new generation. Japan places a ritualistic weightness on everyday acts-a-talent our own culture lacks and turn almost anything, including knots and ropes into art. Nowadays rope is used to create an artistic, meaningful scene between two people. Kinbaku is about creating a beautiful climate and an exciting dramatic experience.
