Description:
Juxtaposed with recitation of the lines of the Hungarian national anthem, the pictures projected on to one another recall human wrongdoings, desires and aggression. The video shows various forms of violence, of a physical and sexual nature, from war to a drunken brawling, through figures in roles of subjugation and domination, depicting pain and the pleasures that accompany it or exist separately from it. In every case a drawing of roughly sketched outlines provides the first transparent plane, behind which the dense series of motion pictures alternate, resembling a descent into hell. (Evelin Páll)
