Charismatic Megafauna, 18.00 at Park
Jesper Kurlandsky and Fredrik Wenzel’s »Charismatic Megafauna« is an ode to Mother Nature. It is an ode to cultural heritage in this modern world of over-consumerism we currently live in. It is an ode to life. This might sound like an exaggeration, but rather, it is the only way to do justice to this visual masterpiece.»Charismatic Megafauna« is nothing short of charismatic. This experimental documentary, by an award-winning duo of screenwriters and directors, is a film that transcends words. By doing so, this audiovisual experience challenges traditional storytelling. Kurlandsky and Wenzel takes us from the townships of Cape Town to the Xingu River in Brazil to the most densely populated country in the world and its capital, Beijing. And they do so without relying on the power of language. No words are needed as »Charismatic Megafauna« proves that a picture is worth a thousand of them.
