Bellum – The Daemon of War

Denmark, Sweden
2021 — 88 min / Colour



War has always been the fate of humanity, its form evolving with “progress” over the ages. But the advent of artificial intelligence and the hyper-digitalisation of weapons is a game changer. In these new conflicts, which are increasingly remotely operated, the front seems to take the shape of a new demon. Bellum – The Daemon of War offers an equally chilling and fascinating consideration of this.
