Super 8 Polyverse
Life and films in the Super 8 parallel universe.
“I was born in a small town in the middle of West Germany. Beautiful nature, but boring after a while … I moved to Berlin and studied visual arts / experimental film and fell in love with my super 8 camera (Nizo) in 1988. Since then I try to be a particle-finder, a wave-catcher and a good story-teller. I try to absorb weird beautiful things from this world. Chew them and spit them out again.

“films live from their directness, from the poetic imagery that brushes the ordinary against the grain, and not least from the tongue-in-cheek earnestness with which the filmmaker regularly surfaces out of the parallel universe of Super 8. Although she herself always emphasizes how important random occurrences are to the genesis of her works, there is nothing random about the finished products, which are instead rounded-out and coherent.
“Coincidence is my friend – even if I’m still not quite sure today if there really is such a thing. In any case, though, there is a certain humour in the universe, which you can be open to, which you can even play around with. Many of my films are constructed in this way: I find images or stories that impress me with their beauty or perhaps their absurdity and then make up a tale about how they came about.
