Ute Aurand – Rasendes Grün mit Pferden (2019)

Rushing Green with Horses is a collection of brief moments, filmed between 1999 and 2018 on journeys, at home, with friends and alone. Private gestures attract my attention, spontaneously filmed beyond narration or documentary: Anton in his apartment, Lilian and Nanouk 10 days old, Jón’s 94th birthday, Sofia dancing, snow at Cape Cod, Detel in her atelier, Franz and Sabrina get married, a trip to Detroit, a stormy sea in black-and-white. We see the same people at various ages, as a child, as a teenager, as a young woman… sometimes hear someone speaking, hear music, or silence. Somewhere in the middle of the film there is a handwritten sentence: “A child asleep in its own life”. (Ute Aurand) Read More »
