Friedlos (aka The Bandit Wolf-Man) HD DVCPRO Duration: 08:12 Synopsis: On the outskirts of the city, the townsfolk are gathered to expel the citizen and bandit Friedlos (aka The Bandit Wolf-Man). In a heathen display they perform the traditional heathen ritual of banishment. Finally Friedlos is tight to a horse, masked with a wolf?s head and send out of town. The banishment questions contemporary societies exclusion/inclusion relationship. The heathen aspect and the epic western soundtrack underlines this society?s regression towards rhetoric?s and ethics in comparison with those of the Wild West, witch hunts and tribal community fear. Friedlos (aka The Bandit Wolf-Man) is set in a world of no specific time generating a timescape that foresees the future as it dwells in the past.
