“Unforgettable...a groundbreaking documentary”
Named "one of the 25 most dangerous films of all time” by PREMIERE Magazine, SICK is the internationally acclaimed film about comedian and performance artist Bob Flanagan whose experiences with S&M helped him manage his painful disease Cystic Fibrosis. A deeply moving, often hilarious profile of one of the most unique artists of this century, SICK follows Flanagan's strikingly original art and life over several decades as he explores the limits of pain, sexuality, love, and death.
