The film Perforationsshows the fragility of our civilization. The film has a non-classical narrative structure. It is made up of five segments: The Temple, The Decline, The Exodus, Death Factory and Necropolis. A surrealistic illustration of the civilization in its religious and technological doubt. The clash of two opposite principles stimulates alienation, exodus, technological suicide. In the end, the demolition of the Temple represents a tragical release from the civilization’s identity paradigm. The films are mutually related to transmit the atmosphere, architecture and to interpenetrate the characters. Simultaneously, they are counterpointed in the atmosphere, tempo, music and noise.
