I AM NOT THERE

by Markus MAICHER
2017 / 16mm / color / sound / 1S / 3' 03

In I AM NOT THERE personal memories and family recordings of the past are haunting the present. Video8 fragments of a day as a child are superimposed with images thirty years later, the look through the viewfinder onto the empty spaces of the present collide with the look of the father through the viewfinder back then. The instability of the film's manual development process hints at the instability of the spatial and temporal coordinates of our existence, the absence of a negative at the transience of memory.
