Friendly Fire [2003]

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.
