June 4, 2024
Joanna Arnow, the director, author and star of the new Magnolia Pictures movie "The Feeling that the Time for Doing Something has Passed" joins us on the show to discuss the role that BDSM plays in this new comedy.
BDSM in Mainstream Film

Filmmaker Joanna Arnow’s hilarious comedy, which world-premiered in Cannes’ Directors’ Fortnight and is executive produced by Sean Baker, follows a 30-something New York woman (Arnow) as time passes in her long-term casual BDSM relationship, low-level corporate job, and quarrelsome Jewish family.
It's an interesting interview about one more step into the mainstream that our world has taken!
