FILTRATE: A Futurist Guerrilla-Style Short Film Shot on an iPhone in Montreal’s Subways

A brand-new short film entitled FILTRATE thinks of a future completely saturated with technology, where post-human figures communicate using rune-like signs on immersive social networks platforms. The film, directed by Mishka Kornai, was developed in the public areas of Montréal’s underground City transit system.

The stars in FILTRATE sport futuristic outfits made by Odette Mattha with sparkling tinsel, long hairs of party beads, and textured fabrics that match the setting’s architectural information. Mattha’s designs take advantage of the special feel of different locations of the Metro system: each station was produced by a various designer. Though the filmmakers clearly used the areas throughout off-peak times, we can just doubt the surprise of an unwary commuter.

In a statement on the film’s website, the developers explain their incentive for FILTRATE. “If people pull back into smaller and more idiosyncratic groups, what will the evolutionary trajectory of our society appear like? As social groups diverge further and even more throughout generations, when does mankind cease to be simply one species?”

The entire process took 2 years to complete, consisting of 43 days of shooting, 6 months of costume structure, and a year of post-production. In spite of its state-of-the-art feel, the creators share that FILTRATE was shot using simply an iPhone 7, a wheelchair, a monopod, and a hand stabilizer.
