Bob Flanagan was an American performance artist, stand-up comic, poet and lifelong sufferer from cystic fibrosis. He was also a masochist who found that his S&M experiences helped manage the pain of his illness. He met his perfect dominatrix partner in Sheree Rose, and married her in 1982 while she hung him upside down from a ceiling (as Flanagan wryly comments during one of his shows, ‘You always hurt the one you love’). In this internationally acclaimed, award-winning documentary Kirby Dick follows Bob and Sheree through the last years of Flanagan’s life. Deeply moving, often hilarious, Sick is a profile of a unique artist, giving an insight into Flanagan’s warmth, courage and, especially his sense of humour.
