A film six years in the making known as Purgatopia: where the antiquated clashes with the atypical. Purgatopia presents the world and its over abundance of information and ideologies as chaos. A radio show host and a twisted media mogul, are held to a mysterious force personified by an obscure being that is as omniscient as radiowaves. Purgatopia is a topsy-turvy world of flickering lights, crossed signals, and idealogical division mirroring the current struggles of the Information Age. The ‘telephone game’ of public opinion takes the form of a self-repeating formula that feeds back on itself to expose the illusive yet omniscient presence of the collective unconscious.
