Berlin International Film Festival 2017 – World Premiere
Following its outrageous premiere at the 2017 Berlin International Film Festival, the erotic sci-fi film by director and artist Shu Lea Cheang arrives in Tel Aviv. The year is 2060 and AIDS has disappeared. However, HIV has mutated into a gene that can be made into a drug, which becomes the new cocaine. Using a unique scanning system, the secret police attempts to identify carriers of this gene. Meanwhile, at a secret location, young men are connected to a system of cables allowing them to produce semen, from which the drug can be derived.
The film focuses on a detective infiltrating the lines of the criminal organization responsible for producing the drug. She is carried away into an opera of multisexual decadence with a range of women, men, and anything in between, as the borders of time and reality become blurred. This cutting-edge film was made in Berlin by Taiwanese multimedia artist and filmmaker Shu Lea Cheang and is bound to create a stir with Israeli audiences.
Entrance restricted for viewers over 18 due to explicit sexual content.
