In the film, we see Unoaku, an architect who works from her apartment in Kuala Lumpur. While she is watching an online show featuring a South Korean dog groomer named Eunji and her dog Soju, she is startled by something that is invisible to all other viewers. This disturbing experience leaves her questioning her mental state, disrupting the clockwork flow of her daily routines. As Unoaku finds other women around the world who have also witnessed this strange phenomenon, “Remote” explores what it means to be connected in the age of technology and isolation.
Join us for this special European premiere of “Remote” on 7 October and meet the filmmakers Mika Rottenberg and Mahyad Tousi in a talk after the film!

The Cinema, floor 2
100 SEK, 80 SEK for members in The Film Club, students, seniors and Klubb Moderna
Mika Rottenberg & Mahyad Tousi
Mika Rottenberg is devoted to a rigorous practice that combines film, architectural installation, and sculpture to explore ideas of labor and the production of value in our contemporary hyper-capitalist world.
Through the editing process, and with footage from sets built in her studio, Rottenberg connects seemingly disparate places and things to create elaborate and subversive visual narratives. A solo exhibition of Rottenberg’s work is currently on view at the Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal (21 May – 9 October 2022)
Multidisciplinary writer, producer, cinematographer, and director, Mahyad Tousi, is working across story formats, genres, and platforms; his projects span network television to the modern art world.
Tousi was the executive producer of CBS primetime comedy “United States of Al” and he is currently writing and producing “1001”, a science fiction adaptation of “One Thousand and One Nights”
