The work of Kristof Vrancken focuses on the fringes and non-places of society in a poetic manner. The absence of human presence is characteristic in this approach. The presence of man, however, is evoked through the visible remnants of human activity.
In '2-Inch-Riot', he abandons this approach and opts for a more research-oriented method in which the individual is rendered more present, while photographic and cinematic attitudes become increasingly more intertwined. In certain scenes, he depicts the individual’s hidden desire to change the world. Vrancken, however, eschews the grand gesture. He seeks out stories of the common man who confidently sets out to change the world. He does not realize that, in a quixotic manner, his tragic and yet comical endeavours will not lead anywhere.
'2-Inch-Riot' will consist of five or so movie scenes that treat serious themes in a humorous way. A number of scenes have already been shot, the rest will be filmed in the coming months.
