FREM offers a stark response to the urgent climate crisis and rapid AI growth and a reaction to the current wave of post-humanist, anthropocentric thinking. This experimental documentary hauntingly depicts King George Island's extreme beauty, serving as a futuristic portrayal of our changing world.

'I wanted to "visualise" the mental processes of an artificial brain using the limited resources that the film medium offers: image and sound. The way in which artificial intelligence thinks is something foreign to us. The greatest challenge of this film was to communicate this special, in a certain way disquieting experience, and to create a non-human character/entity in such a way that viewers could identify with it, to establish a link with its perspective.' - Viera ČÁKANYOVÁ
