Short film ‘Artemis’

Artemis is a poetic pamphlet about our supposed superiority over nature.
The film reverses the prevailing narrative on the passivity and pitiability of nature and for once lets the animals do the talking. Wild foxes, herons, cormorants, gulls and bison: they tell us how they are doing. They show us their lives in the 4th most densely populated area in the world: the industrial and urban agglomeration of Amsterdam, the Netherlands. The perseverance and strength they show in the process raises the question of who exactly is superior to whom – and who will ultimately survive whom. Artemis is above all a discussion piece; a film that aims to invite debate and reflection on our attitude towards nature.
