Captions provided by CCTubes – Captioning the Internet! In a time where post-truth news divides and conservative politics fails to lure in young voters, a extraordinary vote for world peace has dramatic consequences.
Epic Fail is an avant-garde essay that questions how we perceive truth, information and politics, seen through the dual lenses of our real and virtual identities.
Moved by the political events that shook 2016, the film is inspired by Jean Paul Sartre’s “Nausea”; or how we can develop visual embodiments of our emotions as a catharsis on how to deal with reality.
