Erich Taschek, filmmaker Michaela Taschek’s father, used to be a fun-loving and sociable man. But then “Eichi” turned into a taciturn loner who locked himself in the cellar to make models and hardly ever left the house. After his death Taschek uses family photos and home movies to invent a wild doppelganger theory that provides a plot for her long lasting feelings of alienation. An essay about disappearance and the power of projection in “documentary” images.

Berlin-Tempelhof airport: built by the Nazis, defended as a free space against commercial interests after it was shut down, turned into one of the biggest emergency shelters in Berlin during the refugee crisis. It’s the starting point of a few loosely connected stories, narrated from off-screen by the director as a script-reading that automatically pushes its way into the images in the viewer’s head. An associative contemplation of the history of present-day Germany.
