Omer Fast, 2014/2015


Fluentum has supported the first feature film by video artist Omer Fast, who contributed his dOCUMENTA (13) work Continuity to the collection.

According to Fast, his film – called Remainder – is "an elliptical thriller about a person whose past catches up with him when he's most vulnerable: In absolute control." Based on the bestselling cult novel by Tom McCarthy, the plot follows a young man who tries to reconstruct his past out of fragmented memories. His obsessive efforts are funded by a large financial settlement for an accident he cannot remember, but neither his friends nor he can anticipate the extremes he will go to in realizing his quest.

Remainder was previewed as part of the Experimenta section of the 2015 BFI London Film Festival and had its international premiere in the Panorama section of Berlinale 2016. It has also been selected for the 2016 edition of New Directors/New Films by the Film Society of Lincoln Center and the Museum of Modern Art (MoMa) in New York.
