Gerhard Benedikt Friedl, Germany & Austria, 2004, video, 01:13:00 min.
The camera appears to simply observe the urban environment, while a detached voice-over gives us information about industrial fraud. But before we realize it, we’re in the middle of a Kafkaesque no man’s land: fictional and real at the same time. The familiar image of industry and the city as icons of collective progress disintegrates before our eyes. The inhabited world becomes a podium for countless intrigues. Although the filmmaker restricts himself to techniques that recall standard television news broadcasts, through a magical twist these very techniques are turned against themselves.
