Garten sprengen

Innovative Cinema Short, AT/US 2022, analog - 16mm, 12 min, eOF
Program: Innovatives Kino Programm 4

Los Angeles, city of illusions. In a montage of own recordings, archive material, film excerpts, interrogation transcripts, and musical dissonances, Veronika Eberhart casts a pall over the dream factory. Garten sprengen transports an alternative narrative to the surface; one that makes Hollywood’s political dimension visible, tells of exile, loss of liberty, and state art censure.
