Screening:  Sick: The Life and Death of Bob Flanagan, Supermasochist (1997)

Director:  Kirby Dick

Plot:  This documentary chronicles the life and art of Bob Flanagan, who was diagnosed with the disease cystic fibrosis. Director Kirby Dick examines how Flanagan began routinely maiming his own body to deal with and overcome the acute physical pain he felt every day. Flanagan's self-torturing habits are the basis for his avant-garde live performances, which are featured prominently in the film. Dick also explores Flanagan's unusual romance with a dominatrix.



ABOUT THE CLUB

The Friese-Greene Club is a small, informal members' club on a quiet soi in Bangkok's Sukhumvit area.  It's name comes from the British pioneer of motion pictures, William Friese-Greene.  The club was created to celebrate the film industry and bring together notable film-makers, students, advocates, enthusiasts, and anyone that likes great movies!  The club has nightly screenings of often rare and older films, also concentrating on themes that are institutional to the development of the film industry.  The three-floor club features a restuarant/bar, private sofas, and a real 9-seat cinema.  You're guaranteed to see something new at the club, and it is truly one of Bangkok's hidden gems.
