Notes from Eremocene

Slovakia, Czech Republic
Duration
78’
Director
Viera Čákanyová

Taking place in a future that does not yet exist, Notes From Eremocene questions the ideal techno-optimistic model that lies ahead of us. From a curious, playful and critical standpoint, filmmaker Viera Čákanyová explores the potential of blockchain technology and artificial intelligence in dealing with complex global problems we humans create – climate change and the crisis of representative democracy. Combining diaristic film footage with 3D scanner images, Čákanyová poetically and forcefully stresses the inherent tension between the analogue and digital future of

mankind.
