How to Disappear
(How to Disappear)
Computer shooting games are usually a faithful replica of real wartime conflicts, but an important real world element is missing – the option to desert rather than take part.
The makers of this short film asked themselves a simple question: in the Battlefield computer game, is it possible to actually leave the scene of battle and desert? The answer is of course “no” – deserting in the game is as impossible as reaching a peace accord. But this simple concept taken to extremes is the authors’ starting point for a reflective essay on topics associated with games and wars, like discipline, disobedience, self-sacrifice, and nationalism. The photorealistic environment of the Battlefield game within which the entire film is made allows the makers to stage absurd situations which explore the possibilities and limits of videogames with detachment.
