28th Ji.hlava International Documentary Film Festival
director: Telemach Wiesinger
original title: Turbulence
running time: 15 min.
synopsisThis expressionist, black-and-white film-poem recalls avant-garde experiments from the beginning of the last century and makes use of stark contrasts between light and dark. Accompanied by ambient noise, the film introduces a dystopian world in which familiar objects are transformed into abstract images, leaving viewers unsettled and disoriented.
“Instead of using words and sentences, my series of photographed single frames and sequences let arise a visual imaginary poetry.” (Telemach Wiesinger)
