Drug Porn

Frederik Malheux
aka Death or Gone

2018, Canada, 65’
Experimental film

Drug Porn is an experimental documentary about the spectacle of substance abuse on social media. In the context of the opioid and fentanyl crisis, the film explores the digital landscape of users who document and publicly share their consumption online. Drug Porn is not only about the individual motivation to expose oneself, but about the Web as a media and how it transforms the notion of community, love, family and communication. More than 45 hours of footage, hundreds of pages of blog posts and interviews were distilled and remixed using glitch and cut-up techniques to insure anonymity, transcend the shock factor and unfold this complex, singular and stratified use of social media.

The Man Who Was Thursday

Art Film

The Man Who Was Thursday is a collaborative film that uses context of shared art production to produce an additional fantasy narrative about a wild anarchist plot to destroy the world. Under the cover of ‘art practice’, an esoteric cabal publicly flaunts their dangerous activity while moving forward with a deadly plan. At the heart of their scheme is a mysterious briefcase that one undercover operative must find before the mysterious figure known only as ‘Sunday’ has the chance to use it.

Based on G.K. Chesterton’s reactionary early 20th century novella, and echoing contemporary conservative fears about a nebulous conspiracy of ‘Antifa’ activists, the film imagines what it would look like if the postmodern values of ‘bohemian’ artists really did turn them into enemies of the state.

Like the Earth, our interior is formed by different strata, which forge our identity and tell our life story. What circumstances intervene in this process and make us become who we are today?Six trans women travel to a small town in León where they will explore unusual landscapes, as well as the ins and outs of their own personalities. Looking for answers about what connects them as a group, they will learn to deal with their differences.
