Lodzermensch
A documentary film project about the city of Lodz, Poland (2009/10)

About the project

October 24th, 2010 Posted in Film, Film Festival Awards, Screenings, festivals, news | No Comments »

Our documentary film project drew together team members from Poland, Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Romania and the USA to work on a documentary film project about the “Lodzermensch”. The film shooting took place in Lodz, in late 2008.  We created a set of stylistically and thematically diverse 11 short documentary films. The premiere took place in Lodz (Kino Charlie) in early 2009. Now in July 2011, some of the films are still on festival tour.

About the film:

Oddźwięk – Resonanzen
(26 min)
Ten film jest osobistym portretem artystki, ktόra mieszka i pracuje w Łodzi. Filmowcy towarzyszą Annie jako organistce, śpiewaczce chόralnej i grafikowi. W obrazach i wypowiedziach widzimy wewnętrzną walkę bohaterki ze społeczeństwem. Jej własna muzyka określa rytm filmu. Obserwująca kamera pokazuje intymne spojrzenie na wewnętrzne konflikty artystki.

Dieser Film ist eine sehr persönliche Annäherung an eine Künstlerin, die in Lódź lebt und arbeitet. Die Filmemacher begleiten Anna durch ihren Alltag als Organistin, Chorsängerin und Zeichnerin. In Bildern und Interviews zeigen sich die inneren und äußeren Kämpfe der Protagonistin gegen die Gesellschaft und eine Krankheit, die im Verborgenen bleibt. Ihre eigene Musik bestimmt den Rhythmus des Films. Die observierende Kamera gewährt einen intimen Einblick in die Gebrochenheit der jungen Künstlerin.

direction: Alina Cyranek, Marc Recchia, Guido Rambeck
dop: Guido Rambeck
editing: Marc Recchia
production: Tanja Cummings, Jakob und Wioletta Weiß
