The Tape of Life

Elämän reikänauha

Directed by Erkki Kurenniemi
Finland, 1967
Avant-Garde, Short


In this satirical film, Kurenniemi explores the possibilities of a symbiosis between man and machine with contemporaneous knowledge. The computer is a ‘giant brain’ – a future-building companion we can hate and mock at the same time.
