The World's Simile is a cinematic journey. A meditation on society, social systems, mass culture and individual perception. As a stream of audiovisual poems it was created out of excerpts of video diaries, created during a number of journeys made between 2000 and 2005 in Russia, Siberia, Mongolia, Italy, the USA and Germany.
The film can be presented in the normal cinema setting or in an exhibition space as a 1 hour loop with a seperate room. After the films duration of 57min there is a 3min countdown for a short break and change of the audience.
