How to Disappear

Total Refusal (Robin Klengel, Leonhard Müllner, Michael Stumpf)
Is it possible to desert in a shooting game? Robin Klengel, Leonhard Müllner and Michael Stumpf consider this question in How to Disappear, their reflection on war and games, discipline and insubordination. Shot in the picturesque military landscapes of online shooter Battlefield V, the hyperreal graphics become the backdrop for an essay-like narrative. A poignant, Harun Farocki-inspired critical inquiry into – and via – state-of-the-art commercial entertainment.
