"An audacious and chilling parable that questions misdirected over- reliance on
gadgets and God. The parallels between Alli's futuristic tale and the assault on
many contemporary liberties is too close for comfort. TRAGOS is an intellectual
adrenaline rush of hypnotic strength and emotional depth."
- Phil Hall, filmthreat



THE WORLD OF TRAGOS





Present time. An urban tribe of technopagans execute their
ecstatic rites in "Tragos", a virtual reality program until their leader,
Bella Luxor, over amps the device and goes blind. At the same time,
her sister's consciousness is assimilated into the program causing
her physical death.
Was her death accidental or was the
Tragos program used as a suicide machine?!

Robert Logos, a fundamentalist Christian attorney, views this death as
the workings of a satanic suicide cult. He hires an unemployed actor
as a mole to bring their demise in this cyber-noir tale of tragedy and
redemption in the hyper-digitized scapegoat era of the future now.


 

Bob Logos (BOBBY WEINAPPLE) visits the Priest (LEE VOGT)

"The story might sound like an opportunity for countercultural
self-congratulation, with heroic pagans fighting off an oppressive church.
Yet the prosecutor, though misguided, is one of the most sympathetic
characters in the movie, and the priest who regularly gives him advice
offers nothing but wisdom."
-- Jesse Walker, REASON Magazine




"TRAGOS": Like Father, Like daughter

 

 

"Totally absorbing and intellectually stimulating, TRAGOS sheds
an eerie and healthily disturbing light on the mass-hypnotic-narcotic
programming that we are all subliminally subjected to, in what we
deludedly refer to as 'everyday reality'."
-- Ralph Metzner, Ph.D
