Fossilis is oneiric cinema, a phantasmal science-fiction prognosis, an essay film and a tale of the verdant inferno of technological legacy. It explores the complexities of electronic waste in twenty-first century Asia, where discarded electronics are dumped. Using live-action sets made from waste materials, scenes from flea markets, 3D assets, and AI-generated images, Fossilis engages in film production that incorporates digital and physical waste objects as artistic practice.

Please note: Limited capacity, registration required – in addition to a valid ticket, you need a (free) ticket reservation for the respective event in advance. Reservations for Deep Space 8K events must be scanned on-site no later than 15min before the programme starts.
