The White Hole

Amusing animated film about our response to the toxic waste crisis.

A printer-friendly version of this page 11 minutes
Directed by Juergen Haacks

This amusing animated film is a wonderful commentary on our throw-away society. One day as kids play in the park, a black hole as big as a basketball suddenly appears. It gobbles up everything that comes its way. All kinds of experts, armed with the latest in modern technology, fail to come up with an explanation. Then they get a great idea: What a perfect way to get rid of all our waste! All seems fine until one day a white hole appears...and starts regurgitating the waste.

Just a fanciful tale? Or does this tell us something about the misguided way we think about waste? There is no away.

"In brilliant fashion the film prompts us to reflect on today's technological society. It makes the point that technology should never be a goal in and of itself, but must only be a means towards a goal."
Oekomedia Festival Jury

"In a satirical manner (Haacks) shows how toxic waste again and again disastrously seeps into the environment from a supposedly ideal and safe disposal site."
Deutsche Tagespost
