Since 2003 Olivier Otten (WdkA/Sandberg Institute), aka Selfcontrolfreak researches the possibilities of interactive video. His short movies on selfcontrolfreak.com are full of surprises and immensely popular.
Order is his first full length movie. It was realized in cooperation with several artists and designers from Rotterdam. The viewer plays an active role, and is responsible for the development of the story.
Selfcontrolfreak’s daily life is structured according to a regulated system of operations as he continues to wait, caught between love and abandonment. His sense of security starts to diminish as outside interference increasingly takes over...
The world première is followed by a Q&A with the director and participating artists, about the (im)possibilities of interaction in film.
After the premiere Order will be released online in five episodes at http://selfcontrolfreak.com/order starting with the first episode on January 30, 00:00 CET.
