About
Diary Of A Neo-Fascist
Drawn to the charismatic leader of a neo-fascist gang, a young woman reveals, through her diary, her descent into political and emotional seclusion. The video presents a poetically stark vision in haunting images and voice, exploring the subtle and seductive nature of neo-fascism and love. A powerful blending of art and politics which takes the discussion presented by Bonehead to a darker, deeper level.
