Andreas Palfinger wins award for diploma project ARKAH
Congrats to Klasse Kartak graduate Andreas Palfinger!
His diploma project „Mother Arkah” just got honoured at the New York International Film Awards, winning the category ›Best 1st Time Director: Short‹
‘Mother Arkah’ is an 18-minute animated short film exploring a speculative climate-apocalypse scenario and the hypothesis of the posthumanist ideology ‘Bio-Technoism’. The project investigates concepts on prohibiting the ‘religion of growth’, future power structures shaped within the ‘Posthuman Convergence’, AI-driven symbiogenetic evolution and autopoietic architectures.
The film serves as an allegory on mechanisms behind political belief systems, while posing questions about how deep the ‘urge for innovation’ is rooted within us humans and therefore how much humanness our planet can take.
