Freedom & Independence

Freedom & Independence

Deutschland 2014/2015, Kurz-Experimentalfilm

Inhalt

The experimental short film "Freedom & Independence" by Bjørn Melhus questions the current global ideological paradigm shifts towards new forms of religious capitalism by confronting ideas and quotes of the self-proclaimed objectivist philosopher and novelist Ayn Rand with evangelical contents of US-American mainstream movies. This contemporary fairy tale, in which Melhus performs all characters himself, was partly shot in a Berlin morgue and new urban environments in Istanbul.
