After hard and beautiful work of Judith Ramsauer, we finished today the two short documentaries “Eisenflechter” (Weaving Steel) and “Zweite Heimat” (Another Home). Both set at the construction site Barerstrasse/Gabelsbergerstrasse in Munich, they are part of the project “2010”.
Eisenflechter – takes in strong black and white imaginary step on a visual style inspired by films like “Power and the Land” and “Spanish Earth” by Joris Ivens.
Zweite Heimat – is focusing on the Romanian and Turkish construction workers lives. Not a social drama but still featuring the gap between living and working in a country for more than 10 years, but not being part of it. “Work up” “Work – finish” “Wife – turkey, children: six, four” often the only words those strong and proud men know.
