System

system

In the film System, we confront what happens when apparently rational decisions prove to have devastating results in real life. How deeds can hit back on themselves if multiplicity isn’t respected. A dilemma that one has to deal with as every act can’t be foreseen and we don’t want to stop development.

On the screen an insect is seen. It keeps flying seemingly tireless on its path. At the same time we hear three stories, based on reality. They are gathered from China, Libya and Australia. Different kinds of problems emerge and to solve them, efficient systems are created.
