“They forced me back to life. They made my body move again.” Kathrin Steinbacher’s animated film portrays the subjective perception of a woman who has been torn from a forty-year sleep. Neurasthenic montages, unsettling perspectives, the dissolution of the world into the abstract, and an uncanny, other-worldly sound design mediate states of fear in light of a reality gone astray, from which she has to escape.
