PRESENT PAST TOMORROW
Director: Amir Kaufmann
Narrative, Color, 22 min.
Germany 2011
no dialogue

 

The film "Present Past Tomorrow" attempts to perceive a transformational process of a stressed individual in the midst of modern life. As flashes of visual heartbeats, the film penetrates a psychological crisis, allowing the viewer to share a healing journey through inner psychic states. "Present Past Tomorrow" is a short film, yet offers a sharp observation into an inner emotional path. The film location was an abandoned Soviet hospital near Berlin, Germany, which was chosen with the intention to radiate and support subtle human encounters and awareness of emotional phases.

Der Film "Present Past Tomorrow" unternimmt den Versuch, den Wandlungsprozess eines gestressten Menschen inmitten des modernen Lebens wahrzunehmen. Mit aufblitzenden visuellen Herzschlägen durchdringt der Film eine psychische Krise und erlaubt dem Zuschauer an einer Heilungsreise durch innere psychische Zustände teilzunehmen. "Present Past Tomorrow" ist ein Kurzfilm und bietet dennoch die genaue Beobachtung eines inneren emotionalen Pfades. Gedreht wurde der Film in einem verlassenen sowjetischen Krankenhaus in der Nähe Berlins, Deutschland, das mit der Absicht gewählt wurde, feine menschliche Begegnungen und menschliches Bewusstseins in emotionalen Phasen zu vermitteln und deren Visualisierung zu unterstützen.
