The Giraffe (wt)

The giraffe communicates soundlessly. A filmic contemplation of the giraffe’s traces tells about human culture. Ambulating through time, multilingual stories unfold. Analogies, symbols, presumptions, investigations, propositions, unexpected leaps, references. An essayistic embrace.

The Plant

Documentary

by Mika Taanila

(in post production)

A village in the Finnish wilderness is overwhelmed by superlatives: the largest building site in Europe, prototype for the most efficient nuclear power station in the world – and a catastrophy for the trusts involved: supply difficulties of unimagined scale, lawsuits amounting to billions. In Mika Taanila’s visual style, using multilayered visual experiments and an abundance of impressing material, a dynamic collage about the utopia of ceaseless growth develops.

PanSonic composes the soundtrack. German distribution by Real Fiction.
