Password: downwithnature

This short film is not accessible yet because I have submitted it to film festivals and await their decision. It has already received the award 'Honorable Mention' by the Experimental Forum, L.A. based film festival. The film was screened by Delete TV on a TV channel dedicated to experimental films.

STAMINA is an experimental, animated short film inspired by ecocritical theory and environmental aesthetics. The uncanny is questioning concepts of Heimat, naturalness and a nature that exists separated from human animals. As Timothy Morton put it: "dark ecology dances with subject-object duality".
