In Development


“I am a diagnosis… a medico-legal construct… of capitalist design”

The London suburbs, the 1980s. A stranger in the family becomes a ghost child and awakens the monsters and desires of a queer childhood.

THE PERPETRATORS collages moody analogue film, original animation and archive materials in a dreamy narrative of queer darkness that ponders the correlations between Stranger Danger, the construction of homosexual identity and the institution of the family.
