The bad field

The bad field

2011 / Germany / 64min

The view of The Bad Field from the window of my room in my parents’ house is the starting point of this video work. The field is both a doorway to and a surface onto which themes of the film can be projected: childhood, war, the disappearance of rural world ? periods, times overlap and clash.
