JOKO

JOKO CELEBRATES HIS BIRTHDAY

Trouble and lust,
Eros and Thanatos,
besmirched innocence which turns into guilt…

Joko, very roughly based on the text by the French cartoonist, Roland Topor, is a hallucinatory and infernal trip with Dantesque proportions and Bosch-styled images. Joko shows us a rite of passage into the world of adults. An horrific child's sacrifice is executed. Joko is subjected to psychological and physical tortures aimed at losing his self-respect, self-image and identity.
