APOCALYPSE BABY -we advertise the end of the world

Dir. Camille Tricaud and Franziska Unger, 2020

Synopsis

„Apocalypse Baby, we advertise the end of the world“ is a Teleshopping Show in the year 2050. The Moderators Camille Cool and Franzi Star present the new products that will help humankind to survive the climate apocalypse. A film about consumerism and climate crises, but also about privileges: „if we really have to adapt ourselves to the climate crises, who can really afford it?“

“A great many of us engage in this kind of climate change denial. We look for a split second and then we look away. Or we look but then turn it into a joke (“more signs of the Apocalypse!”). Which is another way of looking away.”
Naomi Klein (This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate, 2014)
