Synopsis: A low-fi, grimy, VHS, edited in-camera, apocalyptic feature finalizes the cycle of videos that began with Jerusalem (2003). Two of the actresses from the first video remain but now joined with a supporting cast of public access outcasts. Using sculptures, drawings, paintings, crude animations, puppets and heavily self-conscious performance – the final piece attempts to string a through-line from the caves of Lascaux and the Gnosis to the DNA-mishap-mutants of the future.
