“It starts with a sudden hole in the ground. As the narrator’s voice explains at the beginning of Adina Camhy’s Crater, a hole in the floor of her apartment opened up overnight – a negative space, the trace or scar of a mysterious event. Accompanying this narration, as in the rest of this stringently composed film essay, we see appropriated images of initially unexplained origin. Only at the end of the work, which was created out of a cooperation with Dan Robert Lahiani, do we learn that the material comes primarily from NASA sources, a geo-information producer, various YouTube channels, and the Yad Vashem Holocaust memorial. What connects all of these finds is, on the one hand, the voiceover narrative, which draws a reflective arc based on various crater appearances on earth and in space: depth and abyss as evidence of past moments of violence. On the other hand, the frequently coarse-grained images, which are also interlocked through their surface structure, often reveal flaws: visual gaps as counterparts to a supposedly omnipotent vision.” (Christian Höller)
