Mist

Austria / Germany / Luxembourg, 2000 (MIFF 2002, Experimental)

Director: Matthias Muller

A meticulously constructed film that looks back at lost childhood, through the poetry of Ernst Jandis. In this digital age such mere fragments of found/recycled footage act like traces that longingly resonate with the disappeatance of film itself.
