A film by Robertas Narkus & Jokūbas Čižikas
The Race takes place in a Lithuanian countryside, during the experimental engineering camp “eeKulgrinda” of summer 2015 in Kartena, where a drone is in pursuit of cars, objects and people. The nature-scientific race between technology and village fantasy becomes an alien musical which is told by the drone protagonist.
The usage of old Lithuanian proverbs are remixed together with the object of desire and proliferated by dance rhythms, news and global, drone related events are made into rap verses.
The locations are transforming from cartographical areas to
tunnel-vision perspectives and from action shots to slow stalker movement. The psychogeographical flight is subjected onto territories and human-affairs.
The 24 uses of drone, fictional headlines and proverb remixes are made by Žygimantas Kudirka and the soundtrack is by Adas Gecevičius.
The Race was selected for the Artists' Film International 2018 by Whitechapel Gallery, London.
