It’s dusk in the Indian Ocean. Two palm trees whisper to each other: “I want to escape”. Confined to a small island, they search for ways to grow their mysterious fruit. Alongside them, another life: money, grown independent of humans, moves in and out of the island.
INTERFACE CHAOS is the debut short film by the Demystification Committee. It explores the search for survival of two entities coexisting in the Seychelles archipelago: money and a unique species of palm tree. In INTERFACE CHAOS, money and palm trees are each observed facing uncertainties in a world largely free of human activity, yet populated by signs of all kinds. One, the fruit which the palm trees strive to grow. Another, the empty shell of a tax advisor’s office.
Streaming here from 29 February to 22 March 2020, the film features an original soundtrack by SKY H1 and is introduced by visual artist and writer Andrea Karch in conversation with the Demystification Committee and SKY H1.
