Review

Having received attention from his short films, The Human Surge is Argentinian Director Eduardo Williams´s first feature film. Episodic and crossing Argentina, Mozambique, and the Philippines, The Human Surge takes a bold approach on narrative. Winding through nations and economic zones, fields and forests, and underground communication cables this narrative emphasizes the commonality and spontaneity of fragmented lives and visualizes labor conditions, miscommunication, voyeurism, and existential anxiety under global capitalism. Each chapter is filmed in different formats, whether Super 16mm, Black magic, and red, and the images´ colors and textures maintain a dreamlike feel, portraying the ambiguity of the world. Winner of the Golden Leopard at the Locarno International Film Festival. [JANG Byungwon]

DIRECTOR
Eduardo WILLIAMS
The Argentine director Eduardo Williams engaged with Jeonju IFF through his feature film, the Locarno International Film Festival award winner The Human Surge (2016). The young are the protagonists of his oeuvre, most often a group wandering the streets and bonding in the virtual world. Most of his films are narrative films ? yet they are realistically shot in cinema verite style. His camera adds tension to the films by exhibiting a desolate place thus arousing the sense of the last survivors of an apocalyptic world. However, the young are forever in joy, seeking their own ways of having fun. They are online although their hideout may be a discarded space. Williams presents short works in the linguistic form of the digital generation and Mariano Blatt’s novel My Youth United implicitly expresses the short works of Williams. Blatt is the co-director of Parsi.
