Filmmakers of many types have long been drawn to the complex “mytho-poetic” realm of dreams, trance-states, meditative solitude, the underworld, the deepest ocean, the darkest crypt ... Gudrun Krebitz names it the “magical dimension”, and her oneiric film is at once both an immersion in this shadowy, intoxicating realm, and a critical, self-doubting, reflexive examination of it. Freely mixing live footage and animation, using pictorial superimpositions and a multi-layered sound design, quoting Rilke and Schiller, her film intermingles snatches of Berlin and Venice, in its impressionistic passage through an inner, ever transforming landscape. (Adrian Martin)
