Five Sex Rooms and a Kitchen
Director / Producer: Eva C. Heldmann; Cinematography: Rainer Komers

US premiere! The film documents work in a little whore house in Germany: The sex rooms are equipped differently according to the varied needs of the customers. The kitchen is where the life goes on between the work: waiting, reading, making-up, calls and more calls, chatting and cooking. The film reveals the expressive power of shoes. The whores dance a ballet of dominance, artifice, and pleasure.) Enjoy speculum and stirrups in der Klinik studio, a bat-cave dungeon with a neat hydraulic lift, and spiked heels galore in this busy Berlin flat, where it’s business-as-usual for four Deutsche Sexarbeitern (German sex workers). (Germany, 79 min. -2008)
