In their new short film and limited collection A.D.E.D. reinterprets modern urban environment and its impact upon us.
A young man moves through deserted streets. Wintery black-and-white Zero City revoking the famous Soviet anti-utopia with Leonid Filatov, is hostile and indifferent. Here, behind every corner there is a spy, behind every door are the kindly ones who are ready to come after you at any moment, every act, even if it conforms to the law, is a privacy invasion. A nine-minute short film at first seems to be a fragment of our monotonous everyday routine, going through which we don’t even question what is this another check on the road and who arrogantly enters our and our friends’ homes, as if being accustomed to silently exist under the omnipresent glass cap.
Throughout the film comes the idea that now an entire generation has grown up, which does not even notice being tirelessly watched. On the screen, we obviously see creative people: artists, who constantly interact with the city on a completely different level than ordinary people, for whom the city is a testing ground for self-expression and important messages, as it is for members of A.D.E.D. — many of you might have not seen those stickers all over the city with five names on them SPACER, NAMER, JUICE, COZEK, CAPTEK. Like the Stranger from Albert Camus story, the main character of the film is running, but rather along the stone shores of the city, running not only from the omnipresent system, but to some extent from himself in it. As a symbolic glimpse of freedom, rapper Husky shows up for a second, he personally experience pressure and censorship of the state.
Life in the monitored space under watched by the tireless Big Brother, including that in the urban environment, and as a result—a revolt against this system, inspired the participants of the association not only to create a short film (by director Alexander Khudokon), but special merch as well.
