The Human Surge 3

2023, 122'

Watching this film, you have to wonder if what you’re seeing is really the pinnacle of being human, and if it is, despite the cheeky wink, you have to think twice about what you want to do when you leave the theater. We are shown people — living in a reality that is almost-the-same-as-ours — trying to pass the time, together, by telling discouraging stories about their work. Filmed with a 360-degree camera and adapted for the cinema, the restlessness emanates from this film.

It’s understandable that the viewer feels lost. You will be invited into a mutant universe that provokes imaginative observation through the bodies of Taiwan, Peru and Sri Lanka – these spaces are recognisable but need to be interpreted, as the recording apparatus is a 360º camera. We are connected to a network without borders, of relationships both physical and virtual, of a shared world that is constantly nearing its end. But that end never comes – and so it’s a patient journey to extinction The Human Surge 3 is a test of our role as observer-observed, because ultimately you get the feeling that it could be you and your search for ways to pass the time in a labour-centered life to appear in Eduardo Williams’ next film.
