CRUCIFIX
'Ixe (written X and pronounced EEKS – as it is pronounced in French –, like a scream, a wound) is an imploded, crucified film. Made to be projected on four screens at once, X is drawn and quartered. At the four points of the compass, at the four ends of the cross, War, Sex, Religion and Drugs, the double exposures, the colliding glimpses the eye barely recognizes, the skillful repetitions of themes, remind us that Sex is also the war of bodies, and the pope, the Drug of the people.
And the story of this young man, shooting up in order to experience all the horror of the world in front of his TV set, reminds us that the heroin orgy is indeed the subjective locus of the monsters of the modern unconscious.' - Guy Hocquenghem

'Ixe is a film dedicated to the law of the same name. Ixe may make you tremble or shudder, these images of escape, crisis, or decadence, of transvestites, bodies in erection, of fits and starts, of repression, war, political violence, shooting up heroin, bodies lost in space, of boxing matches, jungle life, survival, tennis, political or religious personalities that make you vomit in shame and anguish; Ixe may be all that – an analysis, working on oneself (a mirror), a snapshot of the ’80s, anything you like, it doesn’t matter – but let Ixe be the shiver of life, that thing that gives you goosepimples.' - Lionel Soukaz

40 page booklet included with unpublished articles by Xavier Baert, Nicole Brenez and Lionel Soukaz.

Hello, Paulo

To our knowledge there has been no edition on DVD of Ixe. You should contact the editor re:voir in any case ([email protected]), because they made some on-demamd DVDs of their old tapes,and they might have done that with this one as well.

Best,

Marcos
