The film Kasino 2001 merges alienated Occidental signs to an updated version of the nativity play. The Star of Bethlehem becomes the searchlight of a police helicopter, the Three Kings – just a lost television crew. With the view of an angel, we drift across all barriers, interviews and the heads of the watching crowd, only to crash into a disillusioned presence.

Tobias Kipp is a filmmaker, and he also draws. The declared goal of his filmic work is to produce an “extraterrestrial gaze” on certain life conditions; in order to achieve this, he redesigns, misplaces and rearranges real sets. He is a cofounder of the Weimar-based production company sonnendeck. tv.
