The gaze turns inward in Mikesch and Treut’s story of a taboo-smashing dominatrix who lures men and women between binary worlds into her lair, exposing their hidden desires and longings. The film was a jolt to the West German lesbian scene and remains timely in its investigation of the dynamic between sex and power.
