Due to the failings of the German state, many people live outside society in a forest: Visibly inspired by the climate activists who have regularly occupied the Hambach Forest since 2012 and shed their civic identity as part of their activism, video artist Omer Fast’s (CONTINUITY, REMAINDER) third long feature film delves deep into surreal scapes and creates an ambiguous masquerade between riddle and parabel that questions the expectations of political cinema.
