Lizard, or How to Perform in Front of the Reptile

director: Roxlee
original title: Lizard, or How to Perform in Front of the Reptile
country: Philippines
year: 1986
running time: 5 min.

synopsis

A punk performance about the trinity of man, the holy spirit, and the lizard follows a strange mass to the sound of heavy metal music. The film cuts to a man staggering around a room with a stocking on his head and to a lizard, which evokes bizarre, heretical associations of worshippers praying to a large reptile in churches.
