The Purified

They made the rules – and then they broke them. Dogme95 has been called the most radical filmmaking movement since the French New Wave. Yet some have branded it a gimmick. With The Purified, award-winning filmmaker and digital pioneer, Jesper Jargil masterfully stamps the movement for what it was while bathing the filmmakers in a glorious, profoundly philosophical light, filled with humor and wit.

Lars von Trier playing the Dogme policeman, their charismatic personalities, the behind-the-scenes view of their “Dogme slips”, clips from the films, and their provocative discussions make for a remarkable cinematic journey into the most influential film ethos of the nineties.

The Purified¬†offers a rare insider’s view into the Dogme95 Brethren and the Manifesto that set the film world ablaze.
