VENUS AND PERIPHERY
Josephine Ahnelt | USA, Austria 2016 | 21 Min. | OmeU
'The Venus Project' is the idea of a new value system for communal living. Josephine Ahnelt visits Jacque Fresko, founder of the project, in Florida. He speaks of a reduced form of living together and thinks that mankind is only following a simple pattern--the pattern of insignificance. „Like most in this world, so too is man meaningless,“ he says. Ahnelt tries to counter this statement with images of the everyday. Showing us that everything in life is significant, even things that may seem meaningless.
