Der Schatten der Apparate
The catholic priory of St. Trinitatis, Leipzig 2016. A chance meeting in the newly opened church is followed by a conversation. The documentary filmmaker and the passionate amateur photographer get to know each other better. Nonetheless, both stay mostly behind their devices – a meeting in restful long shots and extreme close-ups. Over a selection of Silesian cakes in the oldest prefabricated building in Leipzig the conversation throws flashlights on more than half a century of a post-war biography.
