2016, Experimental amateur film footage

This short represents a collage of amateur home movies.

Due to the personal origin and  candid nature of the video material, a strong reminiscent mood is attached to the video  content. Home movie material often depicts an idealised version of a family because of its  highly selected, private and therefore „censored“ documentation of events. Through abstraction and recombination an ominous atmosphere is created in  Krezverreutsel (wordplay for crossword) which contrasts the originally harmonious video  material. The playful non-verbal collage emulates a glance back into the childhood. The  short’s driving rhythm imitates a feeling of childish fear and loss of control which paints a picture of an infantile nightmare.
