MATCHSTICKMAN

Short Documentary Film, AT 2021, digital, 25 min, OmeU
Program: Kurzdokumentarfilm Programm 5

HP Hettich roams the streets of Vienna, his gaze directed down at the ground. He is in search of the objects that his artworks are made of: matchsticks, carelessly tossed, lying between cracks, and in front of the entrances to buildings. Katharina Kastner filmed Hettich in 2014, one year before his death. Arising is a sensitive portrait of a latecomer to the arts.
