Christoph Draeger / Gary Breslin
The film Constructio Infernalis is a collaboration between Swiss visual artist Christoph Draeger, and New York director Gary Breslin. The two shot the film in six days on location in Sao Paulo, with an all Brazilian cast and crew. Along with rising star Paula Zwicker as the school girl Lucia, it features Brazilian horror film legend Zé do Caixao (Coffin Joe) as the vagrant. A psychological horror thriller reminiscent of The Shining, Constructio Infernalis is a short film (30 minutes) that uses modernist architecture as a tool for exploring mental terror and insanity. The slowly increasing horror of Constructio Infernalis is employed as a metaphor for failed architectural utopias of Modernity.
