Puppets. Pixels. Anime. Live action. Stock footage. - Lumpennerd Johannes Grenzfurthner gives an ideotaining cinematic revue about important political concepts. Everyone is talking about freedom. Privacy. Identity. Resistance. The Market. The Left. But, yikes, Johannes can't tolerate ignorant and topically abusive comments on the "Internet" anymore. Supported by writer Ishan Raval, in this film, Johannes explains, re-evaluates, and sometimes sacrifices political golden calves of discourse. - Not to be used with false consciousness or silicone-based lubricant.Written by
Another feat by director-writer-actor Johannes Grenzfurthner. He pulls off an almost impossible task: being seriously funny while being dead serious.
I don't even think this film can be considered a documentary. Nothing is documented, not even re-enacted, and it's also not a mockumentary or docufiction. It uses whimsical narrative and musical elements to explain political theory and philosophy. I think Grenzfurthner created his own little genre. Docufarce? Documentravesty?
