Description:
Three interviews with three murderers. The assignment of one of the hit-men is to liquidate a film hero and the implementation requires the meeting of electronic sign and celluloid. The multi-layeredness of the use of analog video technique offers a glimpse into the thoughts of hit-men and sheds light on the fact that the Aristotelian theory of catharsis comes with an excess of agitation. In the best of all possible circumstances a professional hit-man therefore avoids any kind of confrontation with emotions. (Evelin Páll)
