Thing

Thing
Director: Anouk De Clercq

Italy, France, 2013, 18 minutes, english with english and lithuanian subtitles

An architect talks about the city he built. We travel through his virtual memory to a boundless, imaginary space. About a place’s memory, about fictitious buildings and the continuation of the past in today’s urban patterns. The architect’s ideas do not take on a particular form, but that does not make them less appealing. Thing reveals an unreliable, yet beautiful reality.

Awards:

2014 – Prix Ars Electronica Honorary Mention for Computer Animation / Film / VFX.
