Two homeless guys, two beggars. They go an ATM box to prevent themselves from cold and spend the cold night in there. Then one of the customers of the bank comes to the ATM and gets some cash but he forgets his ATM Card there. Then our story begins and a fight starts between two beggars and it’s not just an ordinary fight. It’s a fight of existence.
Human beings are not gifted to know in what circumstances they are going to live their lives beforehand. They always chase to get an ideology, to be a member of a community, to have prestige, to get famous, to believe in a religion or they become “the other”. That means human beings are always run at absolute identity, absolute meaning. However they would never reach that line. In this short film, Filth, two beggars start to make orbits around those notions and this make them to search for their identities and this searching process leads them to a dead end. The film reflects this half-hopeless, half-aggresive atmosphere of a continious alienation and seeking of identity. This seeking of identity shows itself up inside of a tragedy. This tragedy does not pops up because of some subject’s tragedy about life. It comes out because there is no subject at all. From this point of view identity issues leads us political issues directly. In short, we can always recognize a –not being complete- issue. People try to create their alterntive identities, they struggle to create it. However they always find a part of their existence on “the other side.”
