1. A performance by Hermann Nitsch, Directed by Irm & Ed Sommer

    The truth to the times we're living is that its almost like we're living inside the sick wet dream of Ed Gein. There is a certain palpable depravity underneath every gossamer thin surface that protects us from light and unimaginable darkness. Since 1963, the Austrian artist Hermann Nitsch has created a series of live happenings, which combine cruelty, sexuality, defilement, and visual shock for "purposes of purification, and "ab-reaction" of sado-masochist impulses." In these performances we can see the amazing creative lineage between Nitsch and artists like Bruce LaBruce who don't necessarily make these films for the sake of shock alone, but to reawaken, magnify and illuminate. This is a film record of his most controversial creation: the crucifixion of a young woman, the disembowelling of a lamb carcass, and her defilement with it.
