In the Future They Ate from the Finest Porcelain
Larissa Sansour, Søren Lind
A self-titled »narrative resistance group« buries the finest porcelain they claim belonged to an entirely fictional civilisation. The group’s aim is to influence history and make a claim for its vanishing land. Combining live action and computer-generated imagery, the film-makers explore the effects myth and fiction have on facts and history.
Born in Jerusalem, Sansour studied art in Copenhagen, London and New York. Her work has been shown in galleries, museums, art books and film festivals.
