A New Normal
Film expérimental | 4k | couleur | 17:10 | Allemagne | 2019

A NEW NORMAL is a stereoscopic essay film that examines the question how to go on when everything has changed. A young man leaves his apartment in an old high-rise and wanders through deserted landscapes. Something is waiting for him out there, but what drives him forward is his desire to leave everything behind, even himself. A narrator recounts fragments and experiences of an everyday life following catastrophe. They bear no resemblance with the journey of the young man, but cannot be cleanly separated from them either. Stories start out as banal episodes about grocery shopping or commuting to work but reveal various strategies to engage with a profound crisis of identity. The 3D images are both an artistic and a narrative choice: they serve as a window into his thoughts and attempts to develop a new sense of normalcy.

Luzie Loose (born 1989) and Paul Nungeßer (born 1991) both grew up in post-wall Berlin of the 1990s. Luzie studied communications at Universität der Künste in Berlin while Paul majored in Photography and Architecture at Columbia University in New York. Their paths crossed for the first time in 2017 at Filmakademie Baden-Württemberg, where Luzie graduated in 2018, directing her first feature-length fiction film Swimming. The film premiered at Busan International Film Festival and won the Hof gold award for best directing debut. Paul is studying cinematography since 2016 at Filmakademie. His films have been shown at various festivals, including Dok.Fest & Filmfest Munich, Achtung Berlin and Max-Ophüls-Prize. A NEW NORMAL is the first collaboration between the two filmmakers and celebrated its world premiere at Filmfest Munich. Paul and Luzie live and work in Berlin.

The Nazis set up a concentration camp in Ebensee. Nürnberg and Peuker wonder what conclusions they can draw from the topography about dealing with the past. The takes remain static; a woman’s voice dryly contributing information from off screen is all that clarifies the context within contemporary history. A site that looks like a dirt road turns out to be the “Löwengang (Lion’s Walk),” which the camp’s prisoners were driven down like animals to reach a tunnel that had to be dug. As soon as the film moves to the residential area that was founded on the site of the concentration camp shortly after the end of the war, surprise at the lack of sensitivity in dealing with the past mixes into the off-screen commentary. What Zement aims to get at is the ambiguity of this proximity of commemorative site and settlement.

The film “Franzosensand” centers on agricultural settlements founded by theGerman National Socialitst on newly built dikes on the mudflat of the Wadden Sea (North Sea). Of the settlements, the so-called “Adolf-Hitler-Koog”, was meant to be a prototype for a national socialist community.Today, the bleak and tidy landscape does not offer much testimony to its history. Excerpts of archived materials that are interwoven with present-day images make the present appear as a surface built on complex, deeper layers of the past.

Bettina NUERNBERG (1976, Germany) was educated in art and film in Hamburg, Berlin and Toulouse. The work of the Berlin-based artist has been screened and exhibited worldwide. She founded the internet platform vestibuel-film. Dirk PEUKER (1970, Germany) studied film and art in Berlin and Vienna.

Drawn by her interest in history and architecture and the ambiguity emerging from modernist utopias, the Belgian artist Sophie Nys left in January 2011 for Rio de Janeiro to shoot the film ?Parque do Flamengo?. From this a semi-documentary resulted whose main character is the Parque do Flamengo, a park designed by the landscape architect Roberto Burle Marx between 1954 and 1959. Simultaneously a painter, sculptor, poet and botanist, Roberto Burle Marx is known worldwide as one of the greatest landscape architects of the twentieth century. The film by Sophie Nys is a 45 minutes uncut travelling shot and represents the whole of the park as an isolated entity. The space is crossed from A to Z at a walking pace. As a stroll, the route follows the curved and sensual line of the park. The film is a physical and plastic portrait of the place, a recording of a living space between culture and nature. At Sophie Nys?s request, musician Arto Lindsay conceived an original soundtrack for the film, using the list of plants featured in the park as a starting point for this new composition.

Sophie Nys (º1974, Borgerhout) studied at Sint-Lukas Ghent and finished a post-graduate program at Jan van Eyck in Maastricht. She brings conceptual and minimalistic artistic strategies to their logical and formal limits by exploiting the broad artistic license possible within the contemporary art milieu. Far from being flippant, her works ? although seemingly ironic ? maintain their eloquence as poetic reflections on her subjects derived from the everyday. Her films have been shown at International Short Film Festival Detmold, FIDMarseille, BOZAR, e-flux, International Film Festival Rotterdam, Argos, Courtisane festival,...
