Am Hauptplatz, Im Wald

Am Hauptplatz, Im Wald

From an outsider’s sober point of view Sofie Thorsen successfully takes the complex appropriation and exclusion strategies of the adolescent villagers beyond their regional and documentary structure. The girl’s story from a highly ritualized teenage life reverberates powerfully: “Others [places] are just temporary. After a while we aren’t there anymore.” (Petra Erdmann)
