This is a short film series whose basic idea originated in the first Lockdown. It deals in different ways with the consequences of the pandemic for each of us. How does our personal life change? How is our work changing? What is merging and what is breaking away?
All day you do a thousand things. All these things are now brought into their own home. One has a house with a garden, the other proverbial four walls. In search of comfort in an uncomfortable situation, I was inspired by a poster by the artist Bruno Murani.
We miss the everyday life, miss the quiet. We miss the variety, miss the hustle and bustle. We miss what we can no longer see, the distance.
„Fernweh“ was created within a series of six short films. The memories of what was become only fleeting moments. We long for them to be endless. We ask and how we can bring the meditative atmosphere of nature into our own home and revel in the fleetingness of our memories.
Although we do not directly see the sequence of events, understand the words, we know/suspect what is happening.
Aleks lives in a single household. Every Thursday, Aleks, Bonnie and Chris get together to eat and chat. The three have had this ritual for some time and love the evenings. Since the lockdown was declared, this is no longer possible. But Aleks misses being together and continues to hold on to the delicious Thursday.
Inspired by „Dinner for One“ A dinner party for three, alone. As a single household, you have to get creative during a pandemic.
The world stands still and yet it moves. Even in a group, we can feel lonely. But being alone doesn’t have to mean being lonely.
Five people answered the following questions for me: What does loneliness mean to you? What do you miss most? How do you feel in the midst of many people? How do you feel in lockdown?
Inspired by the answers of these people, „Isolation“ was created.
Love you on the other Side
When the partner lives in another country. „Our will is only the wind that urges and turns us; because we ourselves are the longing that stands in blossoms.“ Rainer Maria Rilke Two lovers are separated by border closure. The memory of tenderness and the longing for closeness floats in the air with every visual contact.
