An austere exploration of consumption, this dark satire which parallels two equally disturbing and disparate worlds convergein the self-destructive destiny of two young souls across time and space. One is a nomad roaming silently across the medieval volcanic wasteland, resorting to cannibalism; the other, the spoilt son of an ex-Nazi industrialist, indulges in a noxious infatuation with his beloved swine. A complex play of images and music in dissonance and yet articulated into acompelling allegory - the one to devour and the one to be devoured are both sacrificial victims of their generation. Screening with The Paper Flower Sequence (12min) from Love and Anger.
