Yesterday evening, I went to the retrospective of RND# (computer jargon for “random number”) by British film director Richard Fenwick . Four years ago, he embarked on a very ambitious project: create 100 shorts illustrating how information technologies have been contaminating every aspect of our everyday life. So far, he made just 20 of them. His language fuses real images, graphics, animation.
He compares technology to “a bad girlfriend” because you’re addicted to her and live a love-hate relashionship.
They’re very small, sort of sketchbook films, made with no budget.
I hate it when people want to tell me the story of the film or a book, so I won’t comment more on the films.
Have a look by yourself at some of them.
