NEW YORK CineKink has announced that the world premiere of "Remedy" will be the season opener selection for its 10t anniversary film festival, CineKink NYC, running Feb. 26-March 3.

Described as a psychological drama based on writer/director Cheyenne Picardo's personal experience, "Remedy" follows a woman into the dungeons of New York City and the world of professional domination and submission.

There, she takes on the fantasies of her clients, all the while exploring her own desires and discovering some real physical and emotional limits along the way.

"I'm hoping to demystify professional BDSM in a way that's personal and accessible by showing it through the eyes of someone discovering that scene for herself," said Picardo, who hopes that the film "humanizes the people who do this work, showing the perks and the pitfalls of exchanging money for fantasy."

"'Remedy is precisely the type of film we exist for, and it feels very fitting to have it open our milestone, tenth season," said Lisa Vandever, co-founder and director of CineKink.

"Cheyenne has done an amazing job at creating a colorful yet sympathetic look at some of the characters that inhabit the city's kinky landscape, conveying both the fun and self-discovery that can be found within it, and the importance of knowing where your trust is best placed."

Starring newcomer Kira Davies in the title role, "Remedy" will screen on Wednesday, Feb. 27 at Anthology Film Archives located at 32 2nd Ave. where the majority of CineKink NYC's festival screenings are also unfolding.

CineKink NYC kicks off the previous evening, Tuesday, Feb. 26 with a gala fundraising kick-off party, and runs through Sunday, March 3. It concludes with an awards ceremony and an AfterGlow closing party.
