Antipodes#01|c-print|115x92cm

A documentary of real-life simulation wargames, the film follows two groups of players from Poland, Russia, Sweden and the Czech Republic, one of which plays the IDF while the other plays the Wehrmacht – Nazi Germany’s army. The amateurs buy equipment from collectors and spend weekends reconstructing battles in the same forests that saw historical confrontations during the Second World War. The film incorporates fragments of a simulated, distant reality, into present-day reality, thereby evoking a decades-long discussion on the effects of the war on local cultures.
