Maria Beatty and Bleu Productions’ fetish films at Rubber Ball 2007

Boy in a BathtubDo you know the films of Maria Beatty? If not, you’re in for a treat when they’re shown at the Skin Two Rubber Ball.

In 1997 filmmaker Maria Beatty unveiled her hypnotic debut work The Black Glove, an intimate portrayal of a sadomasochistic encounter between herself and a dominant female partner. The now-legendary film made the entrancing submissive a cult star in the worldwide fetish scene and defined her “erotic noir” style, an atmospheric blend of lesbian hardcore and the shadowy look of old crime flicks.

Committed to total control over her own work, Beatty has gone on to establish herself as a true independent, winning acclaim and awards for her uncompromising work. Her highly personal approach achieves an authentic sensuality rarely seen in adult cinema, leading viewers into the enticing worlds of fetishism: rope bondage, spanking, stilettos, latex, hot wax, golden showers, breast play, foot worship and more. In her words, “My films delight in the playful relationship between pleasure and pain.”
Here are two independent reviews…

“Beatty makes porno into fetishistic film noir. Imagine a kinky Louise Brooks, a sadistic Marlene Dietrich (who’s the top?) and some nipple clamps and hot wax, and you’re beginning to get the idea… ”
Tristan Taormino, The Village Voice

“Maria Beatty’s fetish films The Black Glove, The Elegant Spanking and Les Vampyres are a Nykvist/Bergman/Polanski festival: dramatic close-ups; massive, internalized longing; and gorgeous suffering. Think Persona meets The Tenant with some genuinely hot sex. Beatty is fonder of dramatic artificial lighting than Nykvist, along the lines of Sam Fuller mixed with Fritz Lang. Her soundtrack selections are very Bergmanesque…”
Sasha, Eye Weekly
