The Binding of Itzik / SHORTS WJFF: FAMILY TIDES
dir. Anika Benkov, USA, 2020, 17min
A middle aged Hasidic bookbinder, in his search for binding materials, stumbles across a craigslist ad offering 'binding lessons for submissive women.' He responds to it, and becomes entangled in an emotionally intense, BDSM relationship with a stranger on the internet that threatens to unravel his quiet life.
The movie is part of the program SHORTS WJFF: FAMILY TIDES
In good times and in bad, in sickness and in health… Though the force of family ties in these six films makes the protagonists return to the past and to the traditions, but the strength of individuality will not give up without a fight.
