Standin’ – 17 Early Mornings

Innovative Cinema Short, AT 2023, digital, 6 min, OmeU
Program: Kurzdokumentarfilm Programm 4

A montage of video material that arose in various cultural institutions, showing the exact same situation: a man (Patrick Topitschnig) in front of the camera, who changes his position in the space, his posture, and his line of vision on command. He seems tired, indifferent, with too little demanded of him. A pleasantly self-deprecating look at invisible work in the culture industry. Those who have no standing serve as stand-ins, but Topitschnig is still standin’.
