Synopsis


How to Disappear is an anti-war movie in the true sense of the word, searching for possibility of peace in the most unlikely of places, an online war game. It is a tribute to disobedience and desertion, in both the digital and real worlds of warfare. Shot in the picturesque landscapes of Battlefield V, the film’s hyperreal graphics become the backdrop for an essayistic narrative. The film focuses the little-known history of deserters. Performances and creative interventions explore the scope and limits of the audiovisual entertainment machine.
