Spoon

Karote
Director: Laila Pakalniņa
LV, LT, NO 201966' no dialogues

Everything here connects to everything else... Society has reached such a level of development that it extracts petroleum from the depths of the earth, transports it to a refinery, where it is turned into plastic, then transports the plastic to another factory, where it takes on the form of a spoon, then transports the spoons to all kinds of stores and eating establishments, where the spoon’s meaningful life lasts a mere ten minutes or so before being thrown out.

This black and white story about the global phenomena is depicting what is a real film in understanding of the director. The only continent where screenings of the unique films made by Laila Pakalniņa haven’t been held yet, is Antarctica. 

Curator's point of view: An industrial symphony where the production cycle of a spoon is freely matched to the framing.

In the screening: Meeting with filmmakers
