As in “Chthonic City”, the painter Anita Müller gives wings to her filmed material in the catacombs of Odessa: statements re-connote documentary images, additions visualise dreams or thoughts. She takes associative liberties that suggest comparisons with jazz. The invisible protagonist who lost his way on a spiritual search of the underworld and disappeared without a trace may have felt as ephemeral and fluctuating as her visual creations.

Die Weite suchen Falk Schuster

Many a GDR childhood was shaped by trips to the Baltic Sea – long drives on bad motorways in an overstuffed car, transit trucks and looking forward to the sea. But this is more than a nostalgic reworking of holiday memories.

Many a GDR childhood was shaped by trips to the Baltic Sea – long drives on bad motorways in an overstuffed car, transit trucks and looking forward to the sea. But this is more than a nostalgic reworking of holiday memories. From the innocent perspective of a seven-year-old boy the journey may seem like a big adventure, but the subtext of the reduced rotoscoped images exposes the absurdity of a life lived within narrow boundaries – one of which was the beach.

Wegzaubern Betina Kuntzsch

The clever montage of fragments from the medical files of female patients from the psychiatric hospital of the University of Heidelberg, paints a painful collective portrait of artists who were confined as being mentally “ill”.

The clever montage of fragments from the medical files of female patients from the psychiatric hospital of the University of Heidelberg, paints a painful collective portrait of artists who were confined as being mentally “ill”. The intimate narration, the waterphone soundtrack and the use of historical Laterna Magica films create a nightmarish atmosphere for this found footage animadoc.
