Art installation near the Techno Club where club visitors gather on their way to the club. For the 22-year-old girl, this installation is the meeting point with her boyfriend. During the 15 minutes of waiting, we listen to the dialogues about different subjects. The environment is tense and aggressive and the girl is waiting. Waiting for the death, which could be predictable if not the carelessness of the surrounding society. The reason of death is the forbidden way of life she chooses. In the end, we see the soleless body on the ground in the colorful environment under the statue of Perseus with the slain head of Medusa, which thematically comments on the idea of the story.

Director Statement

With the short film Agnus I wanted to tell the story about one part of the modern generation of clubbers, bohemians and a couple - a girl and a boy - with a different perception of life they want. For a boy who's raised still in a traditional family the way of life girl chooses is unacceptable. Lost between his mentality and the love, boy kills the girl.
All the dialogues in the movie and scenes describe the society and the environment in which we're waiting for something big to come, but not as big as the murder and as in real life happens, it comes exactly when it's least expected. That's exactly what was happening about two years ago in my country. At least two women killed in a week and we never searched the reason in the society or the environment they were in.
