Clarisse Hahn
Born in 1973 in Paris. Lives in Paris. Through her films, photographs and video installations, Clarisse Hahn pursues a documentary research on communities, behavioural codes and the social role of the body.

Karima's Synopsis
Karima is a young dominatrix of Algerian origin that Clarisse Hahn filmed throughout 2002. The artist focuses on the diversity of ways of relating to others. This documentary film shows Karima in the privacy of her family, with her friends or during domination sessions. The SM takes on a maternal and generous aspect in this young woman. The body appears alternately as a source of pleasure or pain, an object of worship or disgust, a vector of emotions or an impenetrable frontier.

Documentary Film - 98 Minutes, 2002
Prohibited at least 18 years of age
