Discussing S&M: A painless conversation with Sheree Rose, collaborator and dominatrix of Bob Flanagan.
Sheree Rose will show excerpts from the award-winning documentary "Sick: The Life and Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist," along with seldom-seen short videos. Not for the prude, humor-less or squeamish!

Sheree Rose is widow and collaborator of Bob Flanagan. She has given lectures and participated in various art activities internationally at The Tate Modern in Liverpool and the Big Site exhibit in Tokyo, Japan, where she shocked audiences with her 20-foot vinyl replica of Bob Flanagan. Sheree and Bob were no strangers to controversy, as their S&M imagery seemed to touch a nerve in everyone who viewed it.
