Greenland 2020 17 mins OV greenlandic Subtitles : English

With his wedding day approaching, a man (Ujarneq Fleischer) and his fiancée (Connie Arenas) grow increasingly concerned about whether it would be wise to invite his dementia-stricken mother (Vivi Nielsen). As she’s using implanted assistance equipment, they ponder whether updating its software could help her function through increasingly frightening hallucinations. A tragic work of humanist science-fiction from award-winning Greenland filmmaker Nivi Pedersen, UPDATED asks uneasy questions about technology’s place in caregiving, and the privacy trade-offs that come with the barter.
