Misty Picture

Film expérimental | 4k | couleur | 16:32 | Allemagne | 2021

Twenty years ago, the towers of the New York World Trade Center collapsed. The endlessly repeating television images of this event were preceded by manyfold stagings of the building, either as a highly symbolic icon, a speculative destruction fantasy or merely as a spectacular backdrop. In Misty Picture, such fictional motifs string together: city symphony, disaster movie and medial trauma therapy become one.
