smart seoul poem
documentary / experimental documentary
Music: Beethoven Sinfonie f-dur (free rights). The video is a comment on our smart - and iphone societies. The hyper-communication marks the face of our modern cities worldwide. The video transforms the poem by Hermann Hesse, "In the Mists" into the digital age. With electronically generated voices and the addition of the verse, it tells of the loneliness of today in the era of smart - and iphones. The mist becomes a digital mist. The music of Beethoven gives the sad picture an ironic lightness. People walk past each other, but they are no longer connected to each other and their environment. It shows their stress, loneliness and isolation. The closeness and intimacy is abolished, just like the nature which is replaced by an artificial nature. Do we end up in total solitude? Premiere: Open Cinema Festival Russia, festivals: Videoholica int. Video Art Bulgaria, Exdox Experimental Documentary Festival Cologne, Facade Video Art Festival Bulgaria.
