That Which Is to Come Is Just a Promise
The Netherlands, Italy, New Zealand / 2019 / documentary / 22' / Docs+Science
A trance film made by the Italian-German artistic collective Flatform (Anna Maria Martena and Roberto Taroni). This is how they describe their work: ‘The protagonists are the land and the sea, at least to the same extent as people and things that suffer as a result of changes. It is a poetic interpretation of the transformation of the territory, the way of life and culture’. This perfectly edited sequence of intermingling takes is a not a technical game, but a reflection on the age of man – the Anthropocene. The changes related to it, the periods of draughts and floods, reach as far as Funafuti, an island in the archipelago of Tuvalu lost somewhere in the Pacific.
