Short Films We Love :: 'Mindless Crowd' by Jacco Kliesch

This one hit us pretty hard as we seem to be getting into more conversations about the pitfalls of social media and the feelings of isolation associated with society’s quest for interconnectedness. Lesson of the day: Unplug, laugh a lot, have more sex, spend as much time as you can with people you love, repeat.



'Mindless Crowd' is a collage of drone footage combined with a voiceover from the 1960s. The short film is examining the different patterns and formations which human civilization has shaped on the surface of planet earth. It therefore is using only one consistent perspective – the top view.
