“How to Disappear” is an anti-war movie in the true sense of the word, searching for possibilities for peace in the most unlikely place of a war game. It’s a tribute to disobedience and desertion - in both digital and physical-real warfare.


Shot in the picturesque war landscapes of “Battlefield V”, the hyperreal graphics become the backdrop for an essay-like narrative. The film revolves around the history of deserters - a part of human history, which has hardly been illuminated. Performances and creative interventions explore the scopes and limits of the audiovisual entertainment machine.

Total Refusal (Robin Klengel, Leonhard Müllner, Wels-born Michael Stumpf) is an open collective criticizing and artistically appropriating video games.
