Festival Rating

Stop-motion music video by Dominika Łabądź and Jakub Majchrzak to the “We lost our phone” song from the album "SUMMING" of Zea + Oscar Jan Hoogland. Each frame was prepared and printed in Riso technique and further photographed and edited.
Both the clip and the lyrics refer to the crisis of communication in contemporary social and political reality. Its dimension is both geopolitical and human. We have lost count of time, space and language perspective. Paradoxically, in the era of the greatest technological growth, which enables us to establish communication in any latitude, even in space, we have lost the ability to communicate.
At the borderline, caused by the blurred fiction and truth categories, We direct our gaze against each other instead towards the power.
