About

An experimental narrative about the Spanish inquisition and how it still permeates our current psychosexual cultural milieu. Soundtrack by Psychic TV, Lustmord and Monte Cazazza. "A video odyssey through the jagged landscape of today's political climate. Centering around a stolen Inquisition-era torture device, the work explores S&M, censorship, art and freedom." – San Francisco Guardian
