23rd Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
how we live – messages to the family
Migration is a natural process and moving images have crossed borders ever since the invention of film. Using found footage and based on his own journey from the Netherlands to Morocco, Austrian director Gustav Deutsch deconstructs home video as a format as an unconscious aesthetic code connecting homes across various frontiers.
Gustav Deutsch (1952) is an Austrian director working with found footage. His films have appeared regularly at Ji.hlava, including Film Is (1998), World Mirror Cinema. Episode 1-3 (2005,) and FILM IS. A girl & a gun (2008).
