PFAD/ VORGARTEN/ KOLLAPS/ STILLE/ Short Narrative. 8 MINS. Dir: Kai Meidenorp. Germany.
What the world will look like by 2050? What will be the next steps in an eco-friendly future? While politicians are engaged on two fronts in a half-hearted war on climate change and the disappearance of natural resources, we have already entered a period in which we are confronted with the very circumstances that we are still trying to prevent. What will happen after a complete collapse? The central point of the piece is to illustrate the loss of the alliance between nature and man and the resulting climate change.
Ellen and James live alone in a silent maze of uniform houses populated only by spectral shrieking foxes. James commutes to and from work each day, leaving in the morning, returning at dusk. Ellen spends her time photographing the foxes.
