Our Ark

Director: Deniz Tortum, Kathryn Hamilton

NL, USA, TR, 2021



Our Ark is an essay film on our efforts to create a virtual replica of the real world. We are backing up the planet, creating 3D models of animals, rainforests, cities and people. We are archiving as if ecological collapse could be staved off through some digital Noah’s Ark of beasts and objects.
