Director Statement

ZIMZUM is a no budget project positioned between art video and experimental feature. An appearently simple but multi-layered story, told by an invisible narrator voice-over, takes viewers on a complex trip in the literal sense: in the middle inside into metayphysic landscapes and thus in a world of illusion and creation.
ZIMZUM (The English subtitled version) is an independent artwork with a precisely composed lettering design. It´s artistic message differs, in some extent, significantly from the non subtitled version. It can be streamed separately on Filmfreeway.
