The film maker finds herself transformed into Pandora as she opens a reel of film and a clould of insects surround her. A single moth.delicately, invisibly, embedded in the substance of the film symbolizes original sin. The disbursement and repercussions of incest are reprsented by the excrement, cocoons, dead bodies of moths and their larva. We see how the insidious spread of disease and evil erupt through the mythological and historical defloration of woman.Thousands of moths were killed during the making of this film. Their bodies filled the frames and sprocket holes. Thousands of girls are raped daily, their lives and bodies treated as refuse.
