The Human Condition:
With “The Human Condition”, we are bringing back a tradition, begun at the 4th Chicago International Film Festival in 1968, of presenting a unique competition. We challenge filmmakers from around the world to use the medium of film to address a particular question, concept, or issue in one minute. This year, we turn to the creative filmmakers of the word to explore “The Human Condition”. Filmmakers of all ages are invited to conceive, design, and produce an original 60 second film that examines who and what we are.
The human condition – is it describable? What causes people to start a war? Grow a flower? Abide poverty? Create Art? Advance technology? Pollute the environment? Seek knowledge? Cure illness? Is there a difference between cause and effect, symptom and disease? What is our place in the world? What makes us who we are?
Attempt to curtail your enthusiasm until 7pm! And don’t miss GAF at 2pm tomorrow!
