About the film
Our debut film is based on a play created by Second Self Ensemble theatre company. As founding members of the company, we at Thousand Faces created the show (called ‘Black Beauty in Irons’) to explore kink, fetish, and BDSM themes from a perspective based firmly within those communities, and specifically through a fictional couple’s experience with animal role-play; more specifically, Ponyplay. We aimed to involve a mainstream audience in a conversation about identity, consent, and alternative forms of expression.
