An experiment with wild kitsch images Soukaz unleashes his aggression on the news material, on war, repression, religion, etc., and shows his despair about a society which has turned the concept of happiness into its biggest myth.

  • C҉ă҉t҉ă҉l҉i҉n҉'s rating of the film Ixe

    Here’s the synopsis read the other way around: Comtean hippie mythology bigoting its nose into what we know as affordable happiness, repainting the concept of society into a show of despair. Inevitable spiritual, political, and socio-cultural iterations demonized by images of wild kitsch, unleashed as a raffish emotional critique from someone unable to reach a vantage point of futurity in their own petty lives.
