A. K. by Chris Marker( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in French and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Multi media play inspired by contemporary events and refracted through Franz Kafka's The trial, Not Yet It's Difficult (NYID) decodes the matrix of technology and society. K fuses hard-core physical action, digital technology, sonic architectures and new texts to portray the dark, humorous and violent world of democracy in the Information Age. Part social realism, part science fiction, part fable, part documentary, K lays bare our fragile social apparatus in a hyper-real tsunami of savage absurdism."--Container
