First screened in October 2019
Director: Panagiotis Evangelidis. Documentary about four Chicagoan men in advanced middle age, living together in self-described "master/slave" relationships. Interview subjects include Joe Laiacona, Patrick Herlihy, Lynn Schronick, Guy Jones, and Craig Rude.

Twitter Capsule: Documentary about 60ish men cohabitating as a BDSM quartet initially feels thin and overstretched but reveals layers.

VOR:   Toggles intriguingly between seeming to overstate the inherent fascination of BDSM and taking a disarmingly casual approach. Unique study of aging.
