"inside this room all of my dreams become realities and some of my realities become dreams" (Willy Wonka and the Chocolat Factory) According to this quotation, the film explores the scenery of a working table,
the mysterious and creative world of an artist and gives hints to different literary, architectural and artistic influences (Kafka, Jules Verne, Boullée, Caravaggio)

[meine heimat]



















animated film (2012)
Germany 
1 min 33 sec 
idea and execution: Susanne Wiegner 
poem and voice: Ulrike Almut Sandig 

[meine heimat] is a poem by Ulrike Almut Sandig, that describes a space of memories or a landscape, that is not clearly defined. "Heimat" is a very special German word, that can't be translated into other languages, because it means as well a concrete place, as a certain landscape or an abstract feeling. During the Third Reich in Germany, the word "Heimat" was barbarously and fanatically glorified and misused with the result that many people lost their "Heimat" and their lives. In the video a picture of a concentration camp is projected on the letters of the words [meine heimat] blended with a film about a train ride through my own homeland to show the ambiguity, that you feel as a German when you think about your "Heimat".

"something I remember" is a poem by Robert Lax that describes a certain moment outside of time and space during a rainy night. For the film the letters of the poem are divided in a large amount of layers. These layers become spaces, streets and the falling rain. And at the end ... "there is nothing particular about it to recall."

one moment passes

idea and execution: Susanne Wiegner
poem and voice: Robert Lax

"one moment passes" is a poem by Robert Lax, a meditative game with the subject "time", with "is", "was" and "will be" - symbolized by a car ride in the film (the past in the rear mirror and the future in front). Three different time layers - the past in the rear mirror is slowed down, the car ride runs forward and reverse - are put on top of each other to create the very moment of presence.

"just midnight" is a poem by Robert Lax, that describes a
temporal and spacial situation by very minimal means.
For Robert Lax the composition of the letters and words on
the paper was very important. And so he created one of his
vertical typefaces, that was transfered for the film. The letters
become spaces and actors, crossed and circled by the
camera. Step by step a three-dimensional formation of words
is generated and disappears again in a sheet of paper.
