  • A hypnotic journey into the depths of consciousness that follows the traces of poet Paul Celan. An archivist listens to extracts from recordings by Celan, dissects the archival materials, penetrates the space of an old street photo of 1937 Czernowitz and resurrects the past in a female alchemy.

  • Everything is different but nothing has changed. A trip through a sunken maze of memories and dreams.

  • A mutilated love letter to the film's form shaped as a response to Mike Hoolboom's "Color My World" (Canada, 2017). A flicker-fest lamenting a lost relationship with narrative cinema, by which it is forever marked.

  • This short film, inspired by Common's "Black America Again", is a celebration of the beauty, strength, perseverance and spirit of the Black community in spite of these troubling times.
