The Unimaginable - 1918VAPTU Project

Last month i cooperated in a film-project by Ferrie Differentieel (from for an Italian internet-film festival.
The year 1918 was assigned to Ferrie to make an art film for the 100X100=900 project at 9hundred and the film premiered last weekend.

The Unimaginable is an international collaboration,
This short film tells a story about a long gone history.
That last year of World War 1 brought not only temporary peace, it also was a turning point on the social field, science and medical development but also the most horrible things happened in that year -things that contemporary man can’t imagine-

My role was only small, we recorded a few spoken words for the background voices, and I reviewed and made a small change in the French translation.
In a apparently untouched landscape.
You need to find the unimaginable there.
And then you come to the opposite, deeply sunk in snow and frozen surfaces. 
“This beauty, has a thin skin. Scratch the land, and imagine, if you can, what lies buried beneath today”.
