about the film

What if the people who recycle our waste in developing nations become immune to the toxins that we are trying to protect ourselves against? What if these toxins mix with organic rubbish and become an air bourn buzzing-fungus that suffocates its victims? What if the only effective protection against this deadly ‘Bloom’ is the saliva from the developing world class and this saliva must be milked so that we can survive?

SPUTUM is the weird and wonderful world created by Anglo/Dutch artist, musician and filmmaker Dan Geesin. Bringing together all of his poetic and tactile talents into one dystopian eco-drama. This futuristic work asks environmental and social questions about the theatrical absurdity of our global ecocide and acidic social hierarchy.

Filmed in Black and White and dramatically spot lit throughout, it has an English-speaking, Dutch cast, unique costumes and locations such as Amsterdam School of architecture and the northern coastal mudflats.
