Synopsis: Sinister visions start the day Johanna is fired from her job. She follows the call in a parallel universe where she gets mesmerized by a mysterious fetish goth cult and her leading lady, the mistress. Occultism, black magic, BDSM sex and rituals lead Johanna deeper and deeper into a world free of moral or taboos — at the same time threatening and seducing her.
• Live conversation between BILLY CHAINSAW & JULIA OSTERTAG discussing the artist’s work and influences + audience Q & A
