Algorithmic Island

Directing: Tekla Aslanishvili


Algorithmic Island follows the trials and errors of developing a deep sea port and futuristic smart city on the wetlands of Anaklia. It investigates the material and social conditions that are produced as a result of these ambitious infrastructural investments, aimed at transforming the country into a trade corridor for the speculative New Silk Road project.
By exploring the awkward infrastructural landscapes and relating architectural frictions that have emerged over the last decade in Anaklia, the film observes how the planning strategies and operational logics of large scale infrastructural investments and even mistakes, which the fantasies of technologically managed smooth urban life inevitably contain, are being manifested in a design of peripheral large-scale geoengineering projects.
