Versatile typographic constellations manufactured with an antique type writer conjure wondrous beings on paper, which emerge to be a warlike people. By originally combined typographic elements Caro Estrada highlights the bureaucratic levels of warfare. Inspired by the analog documentation techniques of World War I the movie reflects the powerful machineries, which run behind the scenes of all armed conflicts around the world up to this day.
