Mox Mäkelä’s Strange screened at Geelong Underground Film Festival, Australia

Mox Mäkelä’s feature-length audio play movie Strange (2018) will have its Australian premiere at Geelong Underground Film Festival, based in Australia but held online from November 28–29.

“The ‘Strange’ will enter a house of the human world, with the trophy hall and tableware supported by the masses.” The audio play movie ”Strange” is a satirical but also tragic story about the visit, the motives of the reception and the destiny where the selected road takes you. The exceptional narrative is a combination of audio play and moving image from an era when structures based on crazy dreams begin to crumble.

Mox Mäkelä (b. 1958) is a conceptual artist active since 1978. Mäkelä’s art has been shown widely in different venues and contexts, e.g. in the Maritime museum of Finland and at international film and art festivals. In her ecocritical films and installations, Mäkelä examines the clash between nature and human nature within the marine milieu. Another part of her oeuvre is “idiot ibidem”, a long-term extended project that studies a literary historical chain of events with full methodological freedom and diversity.
