The Human Surge
Location: Bartos Screening Room
Dir. Eduardo Williams. 2016, 100 mins, Digital projection. With Sergio Morosini, Shine Marx, Domingos Marengula, Irene Doliente Paña. In Spanish, Portuguese, and Visayan with English subtitles. In filmmaker Eduardo Williams’s audacious and freewheeling first feature, a young man named Exe in Buenos Aires has lost his job and is not looking for another one. Online, he meets Alf, a boy from Mozambique who is also bored with his job and who is about to follow Archie, another boy who has run away into the jungle. Through the dense vegetation of the forest, Archie tracks ants back to their nest. One of them wanders off course and comes across Chai, a Filipina who is sitting on a giant heap of earth and about to return to her strange, beautiful home town. The mysterious, humorous ways in which their adventures connect (or do not) fuels The Human Surge, a film of our present moment that boldly and wildly looks towards our future.
