This is an abstract film.

Understanding the need and requirement for words that allow viewers an easier access to my work I will do my best to supply this.

However, the original idea behind this work does not include any description in words as this film is asking for your attention during the experience of it.
I want to initiate a free flow of associations and imaginations, want to trigger inspiration in the audience, a process that should stay outside my control.

The film has a structure that is embedded - as I hope - invisibly in it.
Visual and acoustic aspects are assembled to sound and look like something familiar, but there is nothing specific that I want the audience to expect or recognize.

An easy way to describe the film would be: It seems to be a thunderstorm in a reddish jungle.
But that’s only one possible interpretation and I am as happy with it as I would be with any other.

That’s why a synopsis or description could be misleading with this film.

If it would include a narrative, a story or anything that should get explained or described in addition to the experience itself it would look and sound differently.
If someone else wants to talk or write about the film from an outside perspective I would not mind that at all.
