DIRECTOR: EDUARDO WILLIAMS

CAST: SERGIO MOROSINI, SHINE MARX, DOMINGOS MARENGULA, IRENE DOLIENTE PAƱA

A restlessly roving digital-organic trip, The Human Surge passes through three skinshedding format transformations while pushing image and narrative to the very edge of legibility, following rhizomatic pathways with an unfettered camera that glides from a hurricane in Buenos Aires, through a webcam looking-glass leading to a gay-for-pay playground, down into the tunnels of an ant-hill, and finally splashes down in tranquil waters in the Philippines, all of this in pursuit of the fugitive spirit of plugged-in 21st century youth.
