Überlebenden-Manifest - Die Kunst der Wahlfamilie

Survivor Manifesto – The Art of Making Kin

Dan Dansen

desired! – film lust and queer

The film moves with the images in a plane, a train, through the forest, stops at the water: we see negative images and colour effects. It is a utopian journey. The voice-over is delivered by a chorus of survivors. A film about trauma. How to heal collectively? The voices speak of the importance of reaching out to the pain. And from there, something different can emerge, a different society. Acknowledging the pain inflicted on other people, taking mutual care seriously, seeking connections.

This film deals with the experience of violence.
