This documentary found footage essay, made up of recycled video snippets, deals with the cold and detached depiction of war in the media and in cyberspace. During daily media operations, the terrifying, irrational, and monotonous machinery changes an event, giving it importance as needed. Yet it maintains a consistent distance from the comfort of our screens, oversaturated and dulled by an unsettling mishmash of images.
