Jesper Jargil, Denmark, 2002

68 min.DK/Documentary

Four Danish directors form a brotherhood, swearing solemnly to uphold ten incontrovertible rules that made it impossible to make films in the usual way. In »The Purified« Jesper Jargil documents the artists' visions through to their completed films. Afterwards he confronts them with their actions and results ¿ which are not always in accordance with the spirit of Dogme. With »The Purified« Jargil has created a unique record of a major epoch in the history of the cinema.
