Our world changes with astronomy speeds. Technologies are
far ahead of our audacious fantasies. How to meet unpredictable tomorrow. Four
films devoted to being a human in the world of technologies show the viewer
non-trivial ways of coping with that.
Nora Fingscheidt introduces us into the world without TV,
internet and cellphones. The community of Mennonites attempts to stop the
moment and preserve their little world pure. But the big World is just behind
the hence. Who knows, if they can stay “Without the World”."Without the World"
“The world is mine” can be the slogan of personages of the
self-title film. They also create their own universe, on the edge of fantasies
and technologies, but it’s the world of future where cyber-relations are more
actual than everyday reality.
“The world is mine”
The inhabitants of “The Quiet zone” suffer from technologies not virtually but
physically. They are electromagnetically hypersensitive. Though medicine still
doubts if there is such a disease, they join together and live in “the quiet
zone”, where because of Green Bank Radio Telescope broadcast is almost forbidden.
Recently this zone has come under the risk of close. The community will
probably need to move away.“The Quiet zone”
Harraway. Story telling for earthly survival” is devoted to the distinguished
scholar, specialist in problems of consciousness and cyborg feminism. Donna
Harraway’s reasonings about changing world and its narrative turns into a
fascinating story of life and thinking. The film immerses us into the world,
full of sounds, images and thoughts.“Donna
