I asked Marika if she would make a bastinado shooting. She didn’t know anything about bastinado or foot torture. I told her I want to make a kind of falaka documentary and explained everything about it. She agreed under the conditions that
- we stop if she reaches her limits,
- her girl friend have to be with her,
- I have to deal with her aggression
- and she won’t accept any BDSM role or session.
She was the right model for this documentary.
We made the documentary in a hotel in Hamburg across from the train station. We agreed we would do it without any cuts. From the beginning we spoke about everything. I asked her about her feelings. She screamed. I teased her. I used whip and belt and she hated both because she hats pain. But the belt was better. It didn’t sting like the whip. Marika had a concept ‘If you don’t accept pain voluntarily, it will dominate you involuntarily”. Her fight against the foot pain made her angry. Her girl friend Tina was perplex. She couldn’t understand why Marika accepted the foot torture voluntarily. Marika screamed sometimes so loud that the other guests of the hotel knocked at the wall. I was surprised about Marika’a power and condition. She really received many many hard beatings. She didn’t beg for mercy any time. And don’t forget it was her first bastinado.
Would you accept pain, physical or emotional?
Marika accepted both. Do you think pain is the way to recieve peaceful happiness? I don’t know but Marika promised me after the interview that she would like to do it again. Also with a cane.
