Zur Insel

work - transport - pleasure
A film specific documentary artistic intervention.


A road movie in which the protagonist only moves forward in her thoughts - surrounded by an industrial country. Containers and ships, trucks and a misty air,
full of petrol and diesel envelop them all. The environment means work as a means of existence. The reveling dreams fill living and working people with life. A place other than the workplace and the daily microcosm have.  A road movie, in which the protagonist moves only forward through traveling in her thoughts - surrounded by an industrial landscape. Containers and ships, trucks and a foggy air full of gasoline and diesel envelops them all. The environment means work as means of existence. The reveling dreams fill the living and working people with life. To have a place other than the workplace and the daily microcosm. The pub "Zur Insel" is shown as a warm but rough environment, wherein dreams are the energy source of the fictitious and real protagonists in this doc / fiction hybrid film.

The film Zur Insel is a work that emerged from the experiences of road trips or voyages with near to far destinations. Conclusion of a recurrent curiosity for movement and leaving behind on the street. The characters on these intermediate levels of Being are often witnesses of Transfiguration, Story Collector, and Lost Forms on their way to the next hoped-for moment of rapture. 

 

Amtrak Train
Projekt 2012 Video, SD

From an impulse and accumulation of material during a 4-week journey by train through America, the shots were taken. A look of a strange passenger, in a land of anticipated images, a match with stereotypical memories and reality. Clinging to a place in the wood class, day and night, with brief stops, the land passes me by. The large panorama window to the outside world is appealing, almost always the sun shines, depending on the cartography of the landscape vary the passengers. Out of many hours of material, Train Trip, a track-movie, whose images rush by.
