Plokta Opening Night: Core Dump (2019)
𝗣𝗹𝗼𝗸𝘁𝗮 is a new film festival that unravels 𝗧𝗵𝗲 𝗛𝗶𝗱𝗱𝗲𝗻 𝗟𝗶𝗳𝗲 𝗼𝗳 𝗧𝗲𝗰𝗵𝗻𝗼𝗹𝗼𝗴𝘆.
For opening night, 𝗣𝗹𝗼𝗸𝘁𝗮 invites you to a series of shorts giving a taste of what’s in store during these five days. Kicking off the festival, we’re very proud to host the Dutch premiere of Core Dump by Francois Knoetze.
Core Dump is a visually compelling poetic exploration of the relationship between cybernetics, colonialism and utopias. Core Dump’s four chapters Kinshasa (2018), Shenzhen (2019), New York (2019) and Dakar (2018), interweave found footage, performance documentation and recorded interviews. Together, they form narrative portraits of a global machine on the brink of collapse.
Each chapter explores local and global networks of technologies, people and capital. In these stories of interconnections across time and space, you’ll discover the nervous system of the digital Earth.
More about the opening night still to come!
