Videorama: «[…] craving for narrative» lässt sich einfach nicht gut übersetzen
«[…] craving for narrative» is a kind of essay film about temporality and the porosity of meaning. Using a desktop-like visual space, it is structured around a 23 second clip from the 1978 movie «Grease» starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John. This short clip becomes the starting point for a sprawling narration. It’s about making sense of obsessions and what it is, that makes nostalgia so appealing. About pop music as a dispositive structuring reality and about white Adidas high top sneaker. It’s about dancing and hyper-intensity. About loops, the presence, families and the question if there’s some kind of post-ideological media-usage these days. And I guess somehow, this film is also about the internet.
