All That is Solid

Louis Henderson
France, Ghana 2014 / 16’

The title of Louis Henderson’s experimental documentary comes from the following excerpt from Marx and Engels’ The Communist Manifesto: “All that is solid melts into air, all that is holy is profaned, and man is at last compelled to face with sober senses his real conditions of life, and his relations with his kind.” It can come as no surprise then that the focus of the British director’s criticism is capitalism, along with its modern tools of communication, such as the Internet.
