SLow

2013, Taiwan

SLow is a performance that shows the defenseless human body surrounded by machines, systems, etc.

Karel noticed that in Taiwan, like in other Asian countries, there are strict rules people (have to) live by, and that these rules can not be easily put aside.

Slowly but imperturbable the boy in the video follows his own path. Using an invisible electric tackle he drags himself in an even tempo through the Taiwanese urban landscape, marking in an entertaining and wondrous way the contrast between the route of the defenseless human body and the hectic world surrounding it.

SLow won the Cinedans 2014 audience award for best short film in EYE Amsterdam.
