His new project, A Man Digging, also recontextualizes virtual geography, but of a much different kind: video games. This short film, according to Dis Magazine, depicts “an evocative journey through the uncanny spaces of video game massacres.” Another way of putting this: Rafman’s film removes Max Payne from Max Payne 3, and surveys the damaged world left behind. It’s totally silent, totally creepy, and totally unforgettable. It also kind of calls attention to the fact that from the perspective of anyone but the hero, the result of a video game shootout is the same as any mass shooting:
- 35 people were arrested at a Donald Trump rally in San Diego as protesters clashed with supporters. Trump thanked police for "handling the thugs."
- The World Health Organization has dismissed calls to postpone or cancel this summer's Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro because of the Zika virus.
- The loneliest elephant in the world has died after spending 67 of her 69 years in captivity at a Tokyo zoo.
