A laconically precise film ironizing the omnipresent Powerpoint culture which converts the world’s meanings into charts and tables. The film presentation transforms some of the essential questions of the mankind and the universe into an association scheme of causes, consequences, reasons and meanings. —Doc Alliance Films
Clemens Kogler lived in Vienna before moving to Linz. He started studying classical painting and worked sometime in an advertising agency and for television but finally decided to choose a career in filmmaking.
In his work he tries to create little graphical microcosms, which have their own individual logic. He starts with static images and try to find a path of motion through these. In some cases whole film consists of only one picture. He thinks that in a way, the process is similar to architecture, with lots of planning ahead. —Doc Alliance Films
