A cerebral meditation on the contemporary human condition

Various groups of young people endlessly wander through disparate landscapes in Eduardo Williams’ cerebral meditation on the contemporary human condition. Defying narrative conventions, the film operates more as a series of atmospheric narratorial threads in which characters—played by queer non-actors discovered on location—merge bouts of scripted dialogue with improvisation. The highly inventive camerawork builds towards a spectacular climax atop a Peruvian mountain.

In what might be a sly riposte to Hollywood franchises, The Human Surge 3 is the sequel to Williams’ acclaimed 2016 film The Human Surge. While both are visionary experiments in narration and imagery, the hallucinatory camerawork of Williams’ sequel pushes the boundaries of cinema.
