IMPROVING AVATAR

2019, puppet film, loop (6:42 min), sound. Voice: Alex Nada. Part of the participative video installation AUDIENCES OF THE WORLD TAKE OVER - PART I.

IMPROVING AVATAR is the attempt of an improved sequel to James Cameron's "Avatar"; a reflection on cultural imperialism, challenging the power and influence of Hollywood film production. In the video we find the two puppets J+N struggling with life in the puppet world: in seven short episodes they challenge common text-, image- and role clichés of the film world, negotiate the imponderables of their (puppet-)lives and try to comfort each other.
