Nixongate is an experimental ethnographic film about a traditional Polish phenomenon - wedding gates - an important part of a wedding ritual.The wedding gates are built on the way to and from the church. In a small village in the South of Poland they have been organized for the past 30 years by Nixon. His original installations are built with the use of different markers of liminality, flags, road signs and a portrait of Lenin. He creates a world that is just as much local as it is global. His helpers are children whom he pays with sweets.
