Crossing Europe Festival Trailer 2021: GRÜN IN

Directed and cinematography by: Laurien Bachmann
Sound: Sebastian Six

Her video work GRÜN IN shows a seemingly undisturbed natural landscape in lush green. At first glance the idyllic nature looks untouched, complete with a steady stream from a waterfall, and yet there is a digital traffic light across from it. In red letters you see it continuously counting down the seconds: Green in 3, 2, 1... This absurd scene is expanded by a soundscape that consists entirely of digital synthesizers: sounds that could seem natural, booming bass tones, and far away mechanical noises carry the statically filmed scenery, and underline a sense of unease that is created by the unvarying countdown.
