"Our disease is called reality" Possessed, 2018


After “Information Skies” – a hybrid of live action, animation and graphics – from 2017, design studio Metahaven has collaborated with dutch writer, graphic designer and documentary filmmaker Rob Schröder to create their new film “Possessed”.

The visual collage of today’s social media age and it’s expressions, reflects the desire of real human connection as individuals in the midst of an ubiquitos media, whereas real(ity) is to be described as an oxymoron itself. Electronic musician Laurel Halo’s film score accentuates Metahaven’s striking aesthetics and the uncanny scenes in the film.

The feature-length film is nominated for Hivos Tiger Award and will have its world premiere during IFFR 2018.
