Minimal Sway While Starting My Way Up Stéphanie Lagarde

We live in a world where ever-increasing amounts of data are gathered and analyzed by increasingly sophisticated computers: in this setting, a talking elevator describes what it perceives. In Minimal Sway While Starting My Way Up, filmmaker and visual artist Stéphanie Lagarde crafts novel images from an eclectic collection of sources and constructs an exciting work weaving together improbable yet coherent elements from the machine’s perspective. The film presents an unconventional philosophical journey that explores the physical and social distance between skyscraper penthouses and the depths of basements whose resources are exploited for the benefit of the minority at the top.
