ABSTRACTING THE BURDEN

Director Jasmin Vardi

Competition: Lookout: The Experimental Film & Video Program

A young woman seated  providing testimony. It seems she is describing a breakup, some unrequited love, but as her story unfolds it becomes evident it is about a remote-controlled takeover. It turns out this woman’s pacemaker was hacked using wireless networks. This narrative arc allows for a multifaceted exploration of how institutions hold power over individuals, the notion of currency, information trade and body and emotions as commerce.
