Syntax Error in 84 is the result of two years' research into Up-to-Date-Domestic Micro-technology, which culminated in the creation of the Kineotoscope. The production consists of two parts. Machine/Machines looks at the evolution of the machine. The role it plays today cannot be overestimated. Today's machines are incredibly sophisticated. What will tomorrow's machines be like? A philosophical yet critical look at the presence of technology in our world. Pierre Zovilé uses special effects with humour and intelligence. Dr A.Mok's Brain Wave is about the perpetual rift betwen creativity and power. Zovilé's tape uses computer graphics and processed images of men in white coats edited at a fast pace to give it a comic spontaneity.
