THE NEVER ENDING NOW, 3min,. Francee
Directed by Damien Krisl
With an extremely sharp imagery, this short directed by Damien Krisl treats elusively the adverse effects of media manipulation. The viewers face an empty room which immediately builds up like a metaverse environment or a sims game house. With every object planted coming from the Space Age era and styling inspired by retro fashion, the film plunges us into retro futurism ; the future that never came. People’s idea of the future years - which in fact rarely end up like we’ve imagined – is paralleled here with the desirable messages sent by media. The latter made to obsess, over the unreal. Kim Schell embodies here the perfect role of the lonesome girl, with only her TV to talk to, dragging her inside, only to discover the tunnel of hidden reality.
