Shot in the aesthetics of the silent film era, this animated music video for the U.S. band “His Name Is Alive” weaves many icons of surrealism into a dark psychological, very physical incident. While Alice is trying to escape from the physical world, the rabbit nibbles at the skin wings of the anatomical angel and defends an egg in a bird’s cage against the devil.

THE LANDSCAPE WAS BLEAK. THE PEOPLE WERE OPTIMISTIC. THE SCHNAPPS WAS GOOD.

In an age that’s about to throw off everything old, on the backdrop of a Berlin of dug-up streets, in a dilapidated ruin that used to be the legendary “Ganymed”, once more at the bar: the actors Rolf Ludwig, Stefan Lisewski and Ekkehard Schall, Barbara Brecht-Schall, the sculptor Werner Stötzer, Karl-Eduard von Schnitzler, Jutta Voigt and other in-crowd celebrities of the past. The glitzy life of an avant-garde who, as the “emergency association of work-shy intellectuals”, occasionally bought up all the schnapps at the Konsum shop to prepare for the 17 June revolt.
“Peter Voigt edited and mixed the elements of life, the images and sounds, in a way that makes his memories seem to float in the air. He compressed life to the core that cannot be explained or interpreted. There are people who took third, fourth and fifth paths when there seemed to be only two main streets. Paradise is not what will be but what used to be. Three times Knaup tells the story of the Australian who was locked up in an asylum. He had bought a new boomerang and wanted to throw the old one away.” (Fritz-Jochen Kopka)

Eryk has led an empty life until he met Lola. There was something perfect about her. Her eye was music, her heart the noblest of her body.
