By Night to Light

Durch Nacht zum Licht

Directed by Friedl vom Gröller
Austria, Germany, 2016
Avant-Garde, Short


The film welcomes us with an image of an “ideal place”: a toy world built by a child. But the idyllic scene is a question of perspective. The city is lifeless, the figures frozen. Without the animating human hands, everything is dead here: we see a cemetery, stone crosses.
