  • Review

    Having received attention from his short films, The Human Surge is Argentinian Director Eduardo Williams´s first feature film. Episodic and crossing Argentina, Mozambique, and the Philippines, The Human Surge takes a bold approach on narrative. Winding through nations and economic zones, fields and forests, and underground communication cables this narrative emphasizes the commonality and spontaneity of fragmented lives and visualizes labor conditions, miscommunication, voyeurism, and existential anxiety under global capitalism. Each chapter is filmed in different formats, whether Super 16mm, Black magic, and red, and the images´ colors and textures maintain a dreamlike feel, portraying the ambiguity of the world. Winner of the Golden Leopard at the Locarno International Film Festival. [JANG Byungwon]
