synopsis

The eternal question of the digital age: how to rid analogue film of the traces of nostalgia? The answer here is a fast-paced stream of sharp photographs and blurred or disturbed shots of Prague's transport vehicles, anchored in the present by passengers holding mobile phones. The music for the film was created by Bratislava-based producer Sofia Nøt, and the film's co-writers include the generative realistic image creation system DALL-E 2.

“What happens when the technology of the past meets the present? Can it create some new level of meaning? The analogue camera [in the film] explores and attempts to transcend the boundaries between the analogue and digital; human and artificial; reality and imagination; genuine and fake.”
