Fa Ventilato
The letters on a departure board turn into grey figures with trolley suitcases hurrying through the high security airports of this world. A red wall abruptly puts an end to the journey of a restless man whose wide-spread arms melt like Icarus’s wings. Reality is punctured and the fatal contradictions of our globalised world are metaphorically exposed. Michaela Müller spent six years condensing her original sound sketch stills into a work of art.

The young woman’s tongue loosens under the shower. When she throws her clothes on the tiles, takes the soap and wrings the water from her long red hair she allows us to participate in her transformation. What started out as shyness has become a passion. And the images, too, unfurl like a kaleidoscope.

A box full of VHS tapes makes Justin Stoneham re-examine his life so far. For a long time he tried to escape his memories: of his charismatic mother, who suffered a stroke when he was four and has been handicapped ever since. Of his own childish self to whom this person was always a scary stranger. Now he risks a first step, with the camera as his shield and transmitter, and meets a woman who has lost her language, but not her sense of humour.
