A twentysomething in Argentina loses his warehouse job. Boys in Maputo, Mozambique, perform half-hearted sex acts in front of a webcam, and a woman in the Philippines assembles electronics in a small factory.
The Human Surge is hybrid cinema at its most playful and electrifying – a docufictional exploration of labour and the global digital economy, and an almost spiritual reflection on our collective relationship to the multiple realities produced by imaging technologies.
Dir. Eduardo Williams | Argentina | 2016 | 97m | Spanish, Portuguese with English subtitles
