Join us for the screening of A War on Earth, 2015, (40min.) directed by Adrián Villar Rojas and produced by Rei Cine SRL, on Thursday, July 6th, 9pm, at the National Observatory of Athens, Hill of the Nymphs, in the context of the exhibition The Theater of Disappearance.
The film A War on Earth, 2015 was on view at the Moderna Museet, Stockholm (Room 01:18) in the framework of Adrián Villar Rojas’ solo exhibition Fantasma (Ghost), curated by Lena Essling, Moderna Museet, Stockholm, Sweden (April 25 – Octοber 25, 2015). A War on Earth presents an ambiguous intentionality: at times, it seeks “to film”, at other times merely to document aspects of everyday work.
The Theater of Disappearance is a trilogy that attempts to depict a current state of latent war that seems to be throbbing underneath the entire human landscape, with its multiple environments and specific conditions of existence. From Mexico City to Beirut, from Shanghai to Kabul, from New York to Jerusalem, going through Qatar, Paris, Palestine, Yangji-ri or Athens, Villar Rojas tries to take samples of these ominous signs out of small actions, daily gestures and silent corners of a planet that seems to be moving—slower or faster, more obviously or imperceptibly, always depending on where we are standing, what day and even at what time—toward its virtual disappearance, at least as we know it today.
