Maja Borg's Passion is a film about longing, healing and belonging. This special preview is part of Birds Eye View’s Queerious programme, exploring a multitude of desires on screen in ways we all too rarely see in cinema.

Adopting rituals and play from queer BDSM practice and their own Christian heritage, artist and filmmaker Maja Borg (Future My Love) seeks to reclaim intimacy in the wake of a destructive relationship.

In Borg’s quest to re-establish boundaries in sex and love, Passion pushes the  boundaries of documentary form, creating a textured, theatrical and intensely personal exploration of ritualistic practices, shot in both 16mm and digital, as a means of “reclaiming of myself.”

Through stories of LGBTQI+ kink communities from across Berlin, Stockholm and Barcelona, Passion portrays the humanity at the heart of the practice.

Reclaim the Frame brings a broader perspective of the world by championing cinema by women & non-binary filmmakers. Run by Birds’ Eye View, a charity with a mission to advocate for equity, diversity, and inclusion in film by fostering a community for those who make, show, release and watch them.
