UPDATE and solution (01 October 2012):
The gentleman depicted explains, and I quote: ‘Media relies purely on sex.’ He does so, because within the ‘Hemisphere,’ the totalitarian near-future state he represents, media are forbidden. Not so in the corrupt enemy-state ‘Megaville,’ which strives to ‘poison’ the society of the Hemisphere by media content. All this takes place in the neo-noir cyberpunk movie ‘↑Megaville‘ (Lehner 1990), starring Billy Zane of ‘Titanic’ fame, which never saw the silver screen, but went direct to video instead. Nevertheless it definitely is worth watching, in my humble opinion, hence I won’t go on with spoilers.
