In Civilization - The Pleasure Principle hypnotic prone pictures emerges from the actual dirt we throw away from us through well-developed sewage treatment systems we are taking for granted. Its filmed in and around waste water treatment plants. Layers of social criticism are intertwined with a fascination for our contemporarys abilities of denial and utter waste. This work deals with purity and danger, pleasure and pain and where to draw the line between those. Its also unfolding an unawareness most of us live under, where we thoughtlessly produce dirt and expect pure and drinkable water in a tap everywhere.
