WHAT YOU WILL HAVE SEEN
Director: Katia Sophia Ditzler
A performative poetry film about what nobody will want to have seen.
Childish paper dolls and tableaus, collage aesthetics juxtaposed with symbols of war,
politics, and religion.
Ideologies and opinions tried on as one would try on clothes.
A poem hinting at the Leningrad siege.
The colors of the suffragettes, Aileen Wuornos glorification, and glorious landscapes combined with Nazi uniforms. Nothing is innocent.
