Ode an das Erinnern

Project

 

Description

The documentary is about the dreams of surviving eyewitnesses of the Shoah and other people systematically persecuted by the Nazis. Ladies and gentlemen from Austria, Germany, Poland, Hungary, France, England and the USA describe their experiences from those dark times when they were children and adolescents – and one representative dream each; some of them bright sparks of salvation from annihilation, others the opposite. With the permission of the narrators, the narratives are interpreted and given form by international artists of various disciplines. Dream archaeology becomes contemporary art. Artists transform the dreams into art for the film.

in German:
Der Dokumentarfilm handelt von Träumen noch lebender ZeitzeugInnen der Shoah und anderer von den Nationalsozialisten systematisch Verfolgter. Damen und Herren aus Österreich, Deutschland, Polen, Ungarn, Frankreich, England und den USA erzählen ihre Erlebnisse aus jener finsteren Zeit, als sie Kinder und Jugendliche waren – und je einen exemplarischen Traum; manche davon helle Funken der Rettung vor der Vernichtung, andere das Gegenteil. Das Erzählte wird mit Erlaubnis der ErzählerInnen von internationalen KünstlerInnen verschiedenster Sparten interpretiert, visuell geformt. Traum-Archäologie wird zur Gegenwartskunst. KünstlerInnen setzen die Träume für den Film in Kunst um.
