A Pile of Ghosts

Documentary Film, AT/SG 2021, digital, 70 min, OmeU

The billboard presents a future city to come. We are witnessing the creation of speculative urban space. Real estate brokers simulate sales talks in front of green screens, promoting the future environment as a promising investment. High-rises dominate the skyline of opaque gray speculation objects while two protagonists are haunted by the dreams of capitalism and Hollywood, asking: Is it just a dream? What if we wake up one day and find out it’s not true?
