Jörg Herrmann’s animated films are firmly entrenched in the memories of people socialised in the GDR. His animation table, which is still standing near Dresden, far removed from all media hype and still used, produced legendary “Abendgrüße” (evening greetings). Herrmann is one of the last of his kind, an original master of the silhouette technique who has retained his fresh and curious perspective on the world.

A few seconds and we know: The next few minutes will be oppressive, dirty and mean. We follow a play-worn doll through five acts of her bizarre stop motion journey through the sexual subconscious. The last thing one would expect is that this visually brilliant video was shot in the filmmaker’s own flat.
