et cetera is a non-narrative film inspired by the salutary tale of the Rapa Nui people of Easter Island. A fascinating story of the collapse of a society in isolation and eradication of nature resources in the creation of their Moai statues.
The parallels between our own Power Stations and the Moai, standing stubborn, sea-facing and completely depleting a finite natural resource are bleak.
This visual depicts our frivolous use of power and throwaway living suggested the name ‘Et Cetera’ literally meaning ‘and other things’. It posits a future ahead that begins to resemble a worst case scenario...
