德国疤痕 Scar Germany

德意志|德国疤痕(2014),是一部16小时的电影,讲述了跨越边境线和将世界分割的地理意识形态。电影拍摄了遗留下的前铁幕的全长(1378千米)——它分割了东西德国。作为从黑海到芬兰海,总长为8500千米欧洲铁幕的一部分,德国的内部边境线分割了这个国家本身。 

电影导演和视觉艺术家布克哈德利用直升飞机严格地沿着东西德分界线的路径拍摄.在这个只有一个长镜头完成拍摄的旅程中,摄影镜头足够低,有时候一个连续的镜头因为途中给飞机加油而不得不中止。渐渐的,摄像机拍摄的春夏秋冬四个季节,加起来超过了三年:这似乎像一个螺旋渐进的明确变化一样,由直线线逐渐生成为一个循环。

这部真实进程的记录电影始终在治愈。艺术家的试图在找寻一条能够永久回忆过去的道路,这条路是当代德国社会理解自身历史的一种抗争。陆地本身承载了自身遗留下来的痕迹,艺术家的本意就在重新追寻这种痕迹。布克哈德试图通过这样的方式来建立一种对过去的冥想,一种电影式的治愈方式。

电影的原声音乐充满了魅力,伴随了整个这部967分钟的电影,也就是说,16小时不停滚动的画面伴随了16小时由克劳斯.威尔斯作曲的,嗡嗡低沉般的音乐。电影还加入了皮斯曼的一段简短录音,暗示了这段跨越了100年的历史(1889-1989),为这部电影奠定了基调。电影本身决然不是一片空白画布所展现的一个装置,它邀请观众进入去理解。

“德国疤痕”(“Narbe Deutschland”)是“疤痕”(“Die Narbe| The Scar”)系列的第二部分,是德国电影和视觉艺术家布克哈德的作品, 是一部实验性的单镜头纪录片。

“疤痕”系列的第一部分名为“柏林疤痕”(“Narbe Berlin”),时长78分钟,主要围绕对以柏林为代表的东德和作为西方自由思想和运动象征的西德分割。

影片主要拍摄了将东西德分割开来的长约160千米的这条死亡地带。

”Narbe Deutschland Scar Germany“ (2014), a 16 hour journey throughthe physical landscape and ideological boundary that once divided the world.The film maps the complete length of the former Iron Curtainremainsof the 1378 km long demarcation line separating the former twoGermanys. As part of the Iron Curtain that ran from the BlackSea to Finland with an overall length of approximately 8500 km, the innerGerman border was splitting the country itself.

Filmmaker and visual artist Burkhard von Harder enlisted the aid of ahelicopter and pilot to follow the precise course of the former dividing line.In this single shot aerial survey, the camera is following this line as closeas possible, sometimes getting lost producing one single uninterrupted movementthat is just cut due to the need of refuelling the helicopter. Slowly thecamera follows the line below through the four seasons in the course of morethan three years: what appeared to be a line proofs to be a cycle that morphsinto a spiral, indicating change.

This real time film document shows the ‘Scar’still in the process of healing. The attempt to find the ‘path’ is akin to theattempt to recall permanently the past as part of the struggle of contemporaryGerman society to comprehend its history. The land itself carries invisibletraces of what has been written on the ground. It is the retracing of the tracethat is the intent of this film. By doing so, Burkhard von Harder seeks tocreate a meditation on the past and perform an act of cinematic healing.

This 967 minute-film, is accompanied by amesmerizing soundtrack, matching 16 hours of constant image flow with 16 hoursof drone music, composed and performed by Klaus Wiese. A brief historic voicerecording by Otto von Bismarck is referencing the time span of a 100 years(1889-1989), setting the tone, other than that the installation is envisionedas empty canvas the viewer is invited to fill him/herself.
