ROLLENSPIELE
(ROLE PLAYING)

2018, short film (15:40 min, unfinished, pre-release), with Nicola Piccini.

Two figures move through the city: one behind and the other in front of the camera, engrossed in a dialogue about their own identity. Together, they engage in an investigation, a social experiment that seeks an authentic expression in the medium of film, which always fails because of its own conditions. People are questioned, places inspected, personal motives examined in search of knowledge in exchange and in confrontation with the situational other. ROLLENSPIELE is a film about filmmaking: in front of the blue screen of a classic homestory the fragmented portrait of an unspecified artist develops slowly, but only a thin membrane lies between "real" and "fake".
