Graduation project Eline Benjaminsen: Where the money is made

Jury's brief description:
‘If I say stock exchange, what image does this bring to mind?’ is the question Eline Benjaminsen repeatedly asks the viewer. Meanwhile, a bird’s-eye view of the German landscape slowly passes by. This cinematic flight is frequently interrupted by colourful graphs showing the peaks and valleys of the financial market or by brief portraits of northern European cities such as London, Frankfurt, Calais, where high-frequency trading takes place. Benjaminsen’s film reflects on how the financial market has left every connection with the Earth behind. The tall transmitter masts that set the stage for this high-frequency trading are the only physical elements still referring to this parallel reality in the clouds. Benjaminsen makes this intangible subject tangible by photographic and cinematic means and also finds a way to make us stop and think about it.'
