Online-Special 10 – Film Talk: A LACK OF CLARITY

As part of our thematic focus on “Transformation”, we will show the current short film A LACK OF CLARITY (Denmark 2020, 22 min) by Stefan Kruse Jørgensen. Afterwards, media scientist Michael Fleig will discuss with the director and the audience about current transformation processes that characterize our – especially digital – society.

Stefan Kruse Jørgensen 

is a research-based filmmaker and visual artist with a background in graphic design. Operating with non-self-produced imagery originally created in other contexts (such as footage from thermal surveillance cameras), his work reflects an ongoing investigation of technical image production and the collective consciousness that shapes it. In 2017, he completed a Master’s degree in Visual Culture & Identity from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts School of Design. His film THE MIGRATING IMAGE (Denmark 2018), was awarded the main prize in the International Competition at the International Short Film Week Regensburg in 2019. Stefan’s latest film A LACK OF CLARITY won the International Competition at the Short Waves Film Festival in Poznan and the Golden Horseman Short Fiction Film Award at Filmfest Dresden. Currently, the filmmaker is taking postgraduate studies at the Academy of Media Arts Cologne.
