Experimental / No

A documentary film poem, a travelogue, a twin town odyssey across the world.

Armed with his 16mm camera, Wiesinger travelled to the sister cities of his German hometown Freiburg, collecting images from France, Spain, England, Austria, Iran, Ukraine, USA, Japan, Italy and the Black Forest. These fragments are brought together to form an associative whole, where aesthetic similarities and differences – building fronts, road junctions, textures and surfaces, the familiar and the strange – unfold to an original musical composition by Cornelius Schwehr.
