16mm, 7:40 minutes
Burned filmstrips meet light and invade the screen with structures of residue, ashes, flames and destruction. New landscapes appear in a state of disintegration through fire. The former carrier of conserved imagery is now in full bloom of organic splendor. The lifeless filmstrips have been resurrected.
An interpretation / remix of my expanded cinema piece ‘Feuer Frei – Open Fire’.
Friendly Fire was financed in part by Jens Thiele.
