FINAL Screenings at the NZIFF

MMPU screened to a packed crowd in the largest screen at Hoyts Riccarton during the weekend. The drawcard was the film The Human Scale, which featured Christchurch and it’s current rebuild. While MMPU revealed the fictional and absurd consequences of letting the machines we build take over and get out of hand – this documentary exposed this absurdity in practice – as it is being built today in the gigacities. They particularly focused on the motorway flyovers, and inhumane residential development. Both films were about an equilibrium thrown out of kilter, by our own hands and our creative impulse. It behoves us therefore to create consciously, with regard to our fellow human beings, and all the creatures of the planet.

Throughout New Zealand our film has now been seen by thousands of people during the NZIFF. I would like to thank the festival curators of the NZIFF for putting these two films together, and allowing the resonance of each to speak to a greater issue.

Every summertime the cultural ministry of Hamburg organizes a big open air cinema on the town hall square in the city centre of Hamburg – where they like to show shorts before the feature. Each year they view 50 to 60 shorts films and this year they have selected our short film “The Mobile Meat Processing Unit” to screen.
