Recommend this film

The sequences of movement and the plots in Roman Signer’s action sculptures can be viewed as sculptures of space and time. The directions of movement in these documents proceed in a markedly contrasting fashion. Hence, the film is called: “Vertical/Horizontal”. This contrast is underscored by the settings: winter/ice/water/summer/clouds/air. A “commentary” to the story is provided with the abstract signs of sign language and, in particular, with music by Möslang/Guhl.

It’s critique of news media, researching the complex, both realistic and surrealistic aspects of these images. The second strand of videos is more abstract and universal, dealing with cognitive, environmental and existential issues,” says the director about his works.
