Preoperational Model

Princess Sophie and her maid Jessica prepare for the new day at the royal court. Sophie’s struggle with her future existence as queen turns hierarchies, role assignments and timelines upside down. A disempowerment story from the perspective of the powerful.

Philip Ullman

The Swedish artist and filmmaker lives and works in Amsterdam. By capturing human movements and voices and applying these to non-human characters within fictional, 3D-animated realities, Ullman questions the grounds on which value and sentience are prescribed, why one life is more valuable than another, and what it means to be human.
