THE HUMAN SURGE

EL AUGE DEL HUMANO
Argentina, Brazil, Portugal | 2016 | Eduardo Williams

THE HUMAN SURGE

How do you describe a film that is essentially indescribable? Eduardo Williams’ feature debut, one of the most audacious and acclaimed visions of 2016, is nominally about work and millennials. It begins in Argentina, where a bored, unemployed young man decides to dabble in internet porn. From there the film connects to other idle young men in Mozambique, and to even more of them in the Philippines. (Though without jobs, they have phones and computers.) The Human Surge is about movement and forward motion, about networking, about “how we live now.” It’s a work that Sight & Sound calls “singular and unclassifiable,” and which Artforum critic Nick Pinkerton says contains “things that I’d actually never seen before in a movie.” Subtitles. DCP. 97 min.

This program supported by the Charles Lang Bergengren Memorial Film Fund.
