More Info Works / Hermaphrodites


Double projection. Swissair was an early 1980’s experimental post-punk band, consisting of six Helsinki teenagers. The film follows the band’s adolescent years from playful goofing around into more observational cinema interspersed with humorous acted sequences of what the group called “neuro-ing” – manifestations of a modern teen angst.
