Family Portraits

Short Film, AT 2024, DCP, 31 min, OmeU
Program: Kurzspielfilm Programm 1

Like a jazz musician “playing” the camera, Johannes Hammel adapts the Orpheus myth in free form. With surreal and comedic scenes, found footage, and playful references to cinema, Family Portraits undergoes numerous metamorphoses that repeatedly refer to the fine line between life and death. A film free of prefabricated grammar, cinema as exploration of the underworld.
