The age of excess

My goal is to make a caricature of my generation – a generation that stands by as capitalism slowly erodes the world from under their feet. The extent of the problem is still not fully understood. Sometimes it seems like we’re making an effort to look away from the issue, even though science is unequivocal on the proof of things like climate change. My film is an attempt to raise awareness, by providing an unfiltered look at themes like overconsumption, escapism and the desire for presenting a perfect digital life. The melancholy tone – the feeling I sometimes get when I contemplate the future – is part of the film as well, forming the background against which the narrative is set.
