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.

Total Refusal


The pseudo-Marxist media guerrilla Total Refusal explores and practices strategies for artistic intervention in contemporary computer games. They work with tools of appropriation and rededication of game resources. Their films and performances were presented among others at Berlinale ‘20 and at the MoMA in NYC and they recently received the award for the best Austrian short documentary (Diagonale’20, Graz). The current members of Total Refusal are: Susanna Flock, Adrian Jonas Haim, Jona Kleinlein, Robin Klengel, Leonhard Müllner and Michael Stumpf.
