All People is Plastic

HD and 35 mm film, 12 min, © Harald Hund 2005


A retro-futuristic film that builds on the contents of Science fiction films, but deviates from the genre in that it does

not deliver a design for the future. Taking the Sci-Fi genre ad absurdum, existing elements (e.g. modernist architec-

ture of the more recent past) were used with which to construct a Utopian-looking city. As in all found footage films,

All People is Plastic is based exclusively on existing material and the product of research. In contrast to narrative film,

identification with a protagonist is rendered impossible by people who all look the same and behave identically.

The film uses content and aesthetic means to address the impossibility of Utopias.
