Love is the law (2003)
The short film Love is the Law picks up the message of love from the Christian tradition, and perverts it through a modern, TV-News setting.
The religious, but at the same time overtly secular love poem the News anchor reads out, preaches and challenges the concept of Christian love. Humor is essential, but at the same time the gloomy corruption of both love and modern mediators of truth is ever present. The film probes perverted desires in a confusing modernity, where power relations are changing and unclear.
All through the film, there is a changing relationship between what is said and what is shown. A sense of distrust is created to any given message, it being about love, politics or media – a distrust that could apply to any preachers of “truth”.
