FIRST TIME [The Time for All but Sunset – VIOLET] + CINEMOON

OT: FIRST TIME [The Time for All but Sunset – VIOLET] + CINEMOON

Nicolaas Schmidt // Germany, 2021
Hybrid // FF2022



Travelling the circle line through Hamburg, where day meets night: this prize-winning film mixes video art and advertising with a love story and is a humorous dig at mainstream cinema. Two boys meet on the subway. Silently, they sit opposite each other, while the U3 follows its circular route through the city. Passengers get on and off, outside and in the light changes. Looks, silence, noise and music. Something happens between the two young men – nothing much, and yet everything. The timeline of love could be a circle. Following the film, the 20-minute performance »Cinemoon« will take place as a premiere.
