"Emergency Turned Upside-Down" D, ED: Oliver Ressler, AN: Studio Orlinder Krinkel, AT 2016

Running time: 16’13”

“Emergency Turned Upside-Down” was shaped by the “summer of migration” of 2015, when the Schengen system was suspended for several weeks and wealthy European states temporarily opened their borders to refugees. The film is a bold animation where the viewer's focus is rewarded with a spectacle of graphic possibilities, a chain of surprising connotations, and a universal message. Reflections upon a potentially imagined borderless world raises an incredibly important question about the possibility of pulling away from the reality we know, where the rhythm is established by boundaries.
