1997, Daniel Eisenberg, USA, 86 min, 16mm

Daniel Eisenberg in person!

This film meditation expands the scope of avant-garde filmmaker Daniel Eisenberg’s ongoing work of deconstructing history through the film image. Drawn to the landscape in and around Berlin, Eisenberg utilizes the technique of meticulous observation to make seemingly innocuous sites yield up the secret of their witness to past events. In a profound but subtle way, the film centers around the Holocaust yet also calls into question the place of the individual in the flow of history. (Barbara Scharres)
