The Fifth Wall (2017)

World premier will be on the 01st of June @ VIS Filmfestival, Vienna (Gartenbaukino)

Central to the piece is a bulletproof glass pane measuring 3x2m, of a weight of 400kg, which has undergone extreme physical forces, the impacts of which created cracks, cuts and sounds.
As an object it represents the omnipresent displays of our time; this wall made of glass  is put between the audience and the camera – it becomes a cinematic metaphor for a society intrinsically linked to the screen. In times of fragmentation and acceleration, side products of the so called digital revolution, we live more and more through abstraction.

A fifth wall has risen and can no longer be ignored.
