Montag (Monday), 2009
Synchronous two-channel narrative, 16 mm in HD, sound, 3:43 min. Actors: Christoph Luser, Kathrin Anna Stahl, Hanna Schmidt.
The parallel conversation between father and daughter on one screen and man and wife on the other reveals the ambivalent nature of emotions among family members: tender and threatening, childishly naive, rife with expectations or resentment. The political conception of the modern family as the core unit of society is here reflected in a maze of mirrors.
Text and mise-en-scène are inspired by the scene “Monday” from the film The Shining (1980) by Stanley Kubrick.
