Film = space × time. Bernd Oppl’s WARTEN realizes this equation in a captivatingly simple way. The cinematic minimalism brought in here—one take, time lapse, towards the end a slight zoom movement—allows, through the medium of film, a contemplation of the relations that shape our existence: waiting means letting time work on you until it has written itself in, permanently.
