Mars
Regie, Video: Yurie Ido
Performance: Roberto Gartz, Barbara Müller, Mew Suzuki-Son
(20 Min.)

There was a photograph in the newspaper of NASA technicians
high-fiving each other as the “Curiosity” rover landed on Mars. In
the same paper on the same day, there was an article about two Tibetan
monks who lit themselves on fire in political protest. What were they
thinking at that moment when they died? Did they hope that their
deaths would have meaning?
The landing on Mars was like a symbol of hope for humanity. In
contrast, the Tibetan monks were like a symbol of the hopelessness of
humankind.
