Frig, film koji se sastoji iz tri dela (Ljubav, Govno i Sperma) je eksperimentalna drama koja počinje završetkom ljubavne afere. Film počinje pesmom koju prate delovi slika. Film uranja u de Sadov univerzum  u “120 dana Sodome”. Izražen kroz ples, poeziju i dramu, ovaj film je ilustracija nasilne prekretnicu, dobrovoljne ili ne, koja nas vodi na put shamana, put oslobođenja.

France, 2018

Frig, a film in three parts (Love, Shit and Sperm) is an experimental drama beginning with the end of a love affair. Opening with a personal poem and accompanied by fragmented images, the film plunges into Sade’s universe in “120 Days of Sodom”. Expressed through dance, poetry and drama, the film is an illustration of a violent rite of passage, voluntary or not, which leads us on the path of the shaman, a path of liberation.
