Director: Viera Čákanyová • Camera: Tomáš Klein, Viera Čákanyová
With her unique perspective of the endless Antarctic plains, director Viera Čákanyová offers a mesmerising experience. Her team successfully shot, edited, and added sound to what is a precise and original film, based on a seemingly simple concept: using drones. This results in a remarkable dislocating effect to which one can surrender, forgetting oneself. The images obtained by an unpredictable digital eye lose all human measuring criteria and tell a story about nature, its beauty, dangers, and ambivalence towards us. When ultimately a lone scientist appears as a distant silhouette, he is the only human presence in the entire world depicted. Is there even any space for humans here? This documentary was selected for the Berlinale Forum at the 70th edition of the Berlin Film Festival.
