The confrontation with philosophical and mythical themes was among the central motives in the work by Gabór Bódy. In De occulta philosophia, visualizing a secret knowledge concerning the nature of man with direct references to the Renaissance and Leonardo da Vinci, precisely the treatise of Agrippa von Nettesheim of the same name, is reworked to a disassociating geometry. The use of laser beams structures the duration of the tape, which evolved from a collaboration with Llurex (Egon Bunne) at the dffb in Berlin, and was also published in the context of the video magazine Infermental, of which Bódy was one of the founders.
The film portrays a fictional nuclear war between NATO forces and the Warsaw Pact that rapidly escalates into a full scale exchange between the United States and the Soviet Union, focusing on the residents of Lawrence, Kansas, and Kansas City, Missouri, as well as several family farms situated next to nearby nuclear missile silos.
When two poor greasers, Johnny, and Ponyboy are assaulted by a vicious gang, the socs, and Johnny kills one of the attackers, tension begins to mount between the two rival gangs, setting off a turbulent chain of events.
