Am Ende vor dem Anfang

  • 2012

  • "At The End Before The Beginning" is an experimental film on the topic of expectations – how we experience anticipation as social beings, individual person, and film audience. It is a surreal portrait collage of people loosing themselves in disappointment and unfulfillment. Whether or not we will get lost depends on our own will to break expectations of individual roles in society and perception of reality.
