And what if we put our smartphones down for a second in order to open our closed eyes wide? This is what the short film My Generation proposes: during an eight-minute traveling shot, we travel through the different worlds of our time - contemporary art, GAFA, sport, religions, pornography, politics, finance, sacred cows, golden calves, generalized surveillance, opium of the people. It's Jerome Bosch teleported to the post-Warhol era. Although modern alienation is singled out, there is no moral judgement, but a clinical detachment in a Kubric style – the facts, nothing but the facts.
Production and distribution
Selected for many festivals (Annecy, Zagreb, Athens, Stuttgart) and already awarded prizes here and there (Houston, Manchester), My Generation's career isn't over yet: the result of an artistic collaboration between Mirwais and Ludovic Houplain, the film will come back in another form this fall, as a clip for The Most Lamentable Tragedy Of My Generation, Mirwais's new single.
