THE MACHINE

A film by Filip Jędraszczyk

Walking down the crowded street, it may be difficult to see how much urban life has been schematized. But when you take a certain perspective, you can spot all the patterns that intermingle in the cityscape. THE MACHINE intertwines images of every-day objects and people in order to explore the relationship between the two, and depict a city as one complex machine. At first, the juxtaposed shots seem to be loosely linked, but as the film develops, their likeness comes into focus and brings out the message. To increase the sense of similarity and mutual influence of these two different worlds, the whole film is embraced by rhythmic electronic music.

I hope this project will make you aware of the scale of schematization of city life.
