The concept of nature vs technology is interesting. Framing it as a wasteland could work. I am open the idea of conveying it through a silent still frame subliminal mindfuck. The concept of the film as I understand it is still interesting. My issue with the film is that it goes nowhere, and not in the existentialist that's the point way either. The film likely does have a message, but fails to convey so in any way.
Thank you, MUBI!!! I hope you ignore the ignorance on parade in the reviews and push harder at this kind of thing. Evidently people need more, not less, exposure to art/experiental film and film history. I have not been keeping up with life here, so I hope it is redundent for me to suggest more essays for films, more framing and contextualizing in addition to in-depth stuff for people who are ready for it.
"The sight of immediate reality has become an orchid in the land of technology" - Walter Benjamin. Glad to see a movie that tries to communicate something more complex than 'technology evil, nature good' (although that still seems to be the way some commenters are interpreting it). This movie reminded me that I'll apparently never tire of cinema's ability to play with scale, to turn minutia into landscape.
I honestly don't know why this is in the list of now showing. It's not even a film and is just quick flashing images of circuit boards and flowers. I would not recommend watching this even though its only 5 minutes long it. The only thing I got from this "film" was a headache.
