Traveling with Maxim Gorkiy Bernd Lützeler & Kolja Kunt 11 minutes 12
As so often, also it’s rather about allusion than description. This also applies to the persons represented. Flat silhouettes of people. their heads depicted in profile. Faces with no expression, formal gestures. In the background, a little bit of everyday life. The hard, square, stone architecture arises from ocher-coloured, brownish, blackish mush of colour or mud. A demonstration of the function of the central perspective. An idealized representation of a topical paradise. Strangely, there’s no absurdity in this. Experimental Documentary Germany
