A shapeshifting dream-diary and metaphysical thriller, inspired by the histories of dissident uprisings and migrational routes of Budapest; the geological depths of the hot springs, and the meandering flow of the Danube River.
THE SWARM circles around sundry anomalous and dead beings who plot a way out of Hungarian fascist rule in the thermal baths of Budapest, taking the form of a shape-shifting, metaphysical thriller, where sensorial, sexual and revolutionary impulses are aligned for the purpose for anarcho-transcendent-communal escape.
