HOW TO DISAPPEAR
How to Disappear is an anti-war film in the truest sense of the word. Searching for 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 on the rarely told history of deserters. Performances and creative interventions explore both the scope and the limits of the audiovisual entertainment industry. (Berlinale)
