A Swiss goes to heaven and doesn’t notice.

 

Max and Chrige are a nice pair, she’s a Jodel singer and he is a linguist. While flying to Sweden, on his way to a conference, his plane crashes into the Baltic Sea. But Max survives the accident and reemerges from the waters, eventually reaching the coast of a Chinese island. Only minutes later, the airplane’s pilot also reaches the shores. Max and the pilot are met by friendly locals who help them, but they are unable to leave the place and go back home. Soon, the pilot starts having an ominous feeling about their apparent rescue…

The Silesian Gate
Das Schlesische Tor

Switzerland | 1982 | 22’ | DCP |B&W | Group: A

 

Director: Clemens Klopfenstein

 

Pictures and Sounds from the Silesian Gate in Berlin and the last metro station before the Wall, mixed with pictures and sounds from Hong Kong and Tokyo. Mixed and blended together, on the notes of Chinese music with western influences, a yearning for far and close places, the feeling of longing that makes one search for the bottle, the phone, or old yellowing letters. The morning in Tokyo is the evening at the Silesian Gate: a short movie that makes you feel the roundness of the Earth.
