Ukrainian immigrant A.K. (Eugene Hutz) finances his dreams of "trans-continental superstardom" with his band, Gogol Bordello, by turning tricks as a role-playing cross dresser. As A.K. literally whips the privileged of London into shape, he secretly pines for the object of his affection, Holly (Holly Weston), an aspiring ballerina looking for her big break while moonlighting as a slippery stripper. Meanwhile, Juliette (Vicky Mclure) steals medicine from her pharmaceutical job in hopes of quenching her dreams of helping Africa's youth. A world premiere at Berlin, FILTH AND WISDOM is erotic and playful, poignant and touching, revealing the universal struggles we all face in our pursuits of happiness.
