Synop­sis:

    Late film­ma­ker Geor­ge Kuchar, genius of six­ties Ame­ri­can under­ground films makes his last appea­ran­ce on cellu­loid as the sinis­ter blacks­mith who opens Pandora’s box and intro­du­ces the main cha­rac­ter –pla­yed by direc­tor Ian Sun­dahl him­self– to the dirty world of lust, desire, and the sins of the flesh. What on screen seems to be an ero­tic fan­tasy is actually an inter­es­ting ana­logy des­cri­bing the actor-direc­tor, or bet­ter yet mas­ter-appren­ti­ce rela­tionship bet­ween the pro­ta­go­nists of this las­ci­vous and pecu­liar short­film. Guest sta­rring this con­tem­po­rary under­ground gem is legen­dary “pin-up” model from the fif­ties, Bet­tie Page.
