Mephisto - The Operating System of Temptation
Mephisto - Betriebssystem Versuchung
In Goethe's play «Faust,» Mephistopheles promises immanence and earthly pleasure to the metaphysician Faust.
For many people nowadays, Goethe's villain is the driving force behind modern productivity in all its negative aspects: sexualisation, rampant capitalism and the explosion of science without ethics or morals. This documentary asks the question - what kind of daily temptations are people exposed? Scientists, who talk about controversial experiments and ordinary people give their views on daily «Mephistophelian temptations.»
