When filmmakers use existing footage as a raw material for their work and subject it to physical and chemical processes, the original material resists deformation and abstraction, thereby producing a new subtext. This is the case with Johannes Hammel’s three-part Jour Sombre. He employed home movies shot in the 50’s and 60’s, of trips into the mountains, hikes across a glacier, alpine huts and lakes.

This film is part of the short film program Schwere Augen.
