DescriptionA homage to film noir, soap opera, thrillers and Mexican comic books generate the action. Perversely and equally inspired by Sade's Justine and Vertov's sentences about the satiric detective advertisement. MAYHEM is an attempt to create a film in which sound is the character and to do so focusing on sexuality an the erotic. Not so much to undo the entrapment (we fear desire; we desire what we fear), but to frame fate, show up the rotation, upset the common, and incline our contradictions towards satisfaction, albeit unconscious.
