Drowning Girl

May 4, 2019

In Requiem pour les Twin Towers (2002), Jean Baudrillard states that the Twin Towers cannot be replaced because one can imagine nothing equivalent that would be worthy of being destroyed.

This a Post-ironic solution for Baudrillard’s problem of the irreplaceability of the Twin Towers, transcending space and place driven by their vernacularity in virtuality. A film about the end of the world as we know it.

Directed, animated, and composed by Faiyaz Jafri.
