Einmal wieder dieser Junge sein

Einmal wieder dieser Junge sein / Being that boy again

animated short film

His mother starts drinking when he is eight years old. Jan Koester projects photos from his childhood on his own body that tell of loneliness and helplessness in toxic relationships. These Rorschach-like superimposed images put physical abstractions in relation to their violent and alienated surroundings. Shifting between fluid and halting movements, telescoped pixels tugging at each other deconstruct predominant gender norms. (Text: Samuel Döring)
