OVER FOUR YEARS IN BONDAGE
EXPLORING THE JAPANESE ART OF KINBAKU
This feature documentary by director Bob Bentley explores the Japanese
art of rope bondage and the people who practice it, sometimes obsessively.
Kinbaku, also called Shibari, has origins in the medieval world. Almost forgotten, it has since been rediscovered in modern times, growing from a niche practice on the BDSM scene into a popular passion for many men, women and couples in Japan and throughout the West.
There are a number of formats of THE PLEASURE OF ROPE:
120 min theatrical feature
90 min television feature
3 x 52 min television series
You might have already seen a shorter 90 minute version but this is the full unabridged 3 DVD set which has over 100 minutes of previously unseen material to make it the definitive documentary on Kinbaku.
The book is based on the unabridged 3 part DVD version of the film.
The pictures are high quality screen grabs and the text is from the soundtrack.
