Sandra Kogut creates a genuine universal score for television. The lively rhythm connects and superimposes the touches of colour and humour. Each part somehow functions like a profile of humanity, which is always the same and always different. Video booths were installed in various cities and people invited to spend thirty seconds alone with the camera, discussing common issues. The ensuing collage is a brilliant, ironic commentary on the globalization of cultural "diversity" and the manner in which it is packaged by the media
