Eight years in prison for a politically motivated crime that one did not commit, but could have committed: dann muss es ja ein was weiß ich was Gutes geben reconstructs a family history that questions the current concepts of victim and perpetrator. A son questions his parents about their former dream of a just society, which blends into his own self-questioning of his current need for justice. A satellite city in pastel shades. A psychologist questions a girl about her motives for committing an apparently senseless cruelty against a defenceless victim. In G_Girls (Ginny), image and sound are in rhythmic dialogue, mirroring the speaker’s breathlessness and cluelessness. Is history told in layers or in linear processes? How can you talk about the disruptions, twists and repetitions in your own history, which is also always that of your family and the place where you live, and which therefore inevitably gets caught up in the offshoots of the “big” story? In Schicht, narrative remembering is always both things: an elegantly associative gliding and an abrupt fall into a bottomless.
