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 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, being on the street.

The characters on these intermediate levels of being are often witnesses of transfiguration, they are story collectors, and lost forms on their way to the next hoped-for moment.
