Earth II | Anti-Banality Union | USA | 96 minutes
The Anti-Banality Union is a collective that re-cuts Hollywood blockbusters into new feature-length films. Earth II is a mash-up of action, disaster and science fiction films across three decades that creates a new narrative commenting on global warming and the cruel logic of American capitalism. Top box office stars appear to merge from multiple films into single characters, commenting both on Hollywood ideology and the narrow range of characters these icons have played within mainstream cinema. Earth II is the most expensive climate disaster epic to be produced for no money.
