Russian film director Andrey Iskanov is the leading explorer of visual medium's boundaries in modern time! Not since Andrei Tarkovsky’s films has human suffering, both physical and mental, been investigated so metaphorically and accurately. Finally Sweden gets the opportunity to experience Iskanov’s poignant, melancholy and shocking nightmare visions.
In Nails, the first part of HalluCinoGeNnN trilogy, we meet a young assassin enjoying a successful career. At home in his cramped, bare apartment, he begins to hear voices in his head. It is the conscience and guilt over killing for all these years that is finally catching up with him. The voices evolve into crippling migraines, psychedelic colors and nightmarish delusions. Eventually he sees no other way out than to self-medicate ... with drill, hammer and ten inch nails!
