Biting the Dust
A found-footage film about Christian ideas of life after death. Do Christians and their beloved animals get reunited in the afterlife? Do animals even go to heaven? The Bible isn’t crystal clear on all this, and online preachers’ opinions differ. Social networks of Christian communities are buzzing with discussions, and notions of the afterlife get more and more kaleidoscopic.
NEOZOON is a female artists’ collective founded in 2009 in Berlin and Paris. The group’s works use the principle of collage, looking at sociological questions about the relationship between humans and animals. Their video films come up with endless new and unexpected contexts for found footage and YouTube material. Their works have appeared at the Centre Pompidou in Paris as well as at many national and international film festivals.
