The story behind the film

We all live under the oppression of certain foundations, breaking which we become the object of public censure. I wanted to play this game and take it to extreme. On the one hand, sex is a red flag for those who like to condemn. On the other hand, the church has always been extremely conservative. I pushed these elements together, making it as dramatic as possible and turning it into visual poetry.

Yes, we used the texture of religion, but this video wasn’t a manifesto against it. I take religion calmly and even with understanding.

It’s more like a manifesto against any power that restricts the natural needs of a person and punishes him for his desires and actions that are harmless to society. And the theme of religion in it is only for the sake of visual aesthetics.
