Harpur Cinema presents ‘The Human Surge’ (Eduardo Williams – Argentina/Brazil/Portugal – 2016)
The first feature film by Argentine director Eduardo Williams develops three episodes in three different locations, Argentina, Mozambique, and the Philippines. In each country, the camera swiftly follows a small group of young people who have something in common – the usage of the Internet and cellphones. These episodes may seem disorganized and lead the audience to feel a sense of being lost and urgency. With such an immersive, unpredictable sensory experience, “if the slender paradox at the heart of the film is that the thing that connects us most is the difficulty of connection, The Human Surge is a victim of its own effectiveness: It’s rigorous, rarefied, and utterly remote” (Variety).
