This film is a response to the current wave of post-humanist thinking caused by the development of technology, AI, and the climate crisis. The human species’ dawning realization of its utter insignificance and transience is resulting in an identity crisis. FREM seeks to reflect this feeling by creating a dehumanized and alienated view of a landscape and nature beyond the human perception of reality. Incomplete thoughts and dialogue fragments, diverse music interrupted by rushes and glitches, and the seemingly confused, unanchored camera combine to create a disturbing, philosophical reflection on the limits of anthropocentric thinking.
