Operation Jane Walk

The film is based on the dystopian multiplayer shooter Tom Clancy's The Division. The game's digital war zone is appropriated with the help of an artistic operation: Within the rules of the game's software, the militaristic environment is re-used for a pacifist city tour. Those engaging in this urban stroll avoid combat whenever possible and become peaceful tourists in a digital world that is a detailed replica of Midtown Manhattan. While walking through the post-apocalyptic city, issues such as architectural history, urbanism, and the game developer's interventions into the urban fabric are discussed.
