Theaterfilm-Festival: »Fallsucht«

37’, dt. with engl. ST

DE, 2021

 

The Film tells of a disease surrounded by the aura of mystery: epilepsy. Sacred, prophetic, sinful, unruly, possessed by demons. A primal human fear, materialized in a disease that threatens peace. It is this uncontrollable that our society seeks again and again to cope with by pushing it away or even disqualifying it as a way of life. In Fallsucht, Lara Scherpinski examines her body as an archive of family and cultural history, as a reservoir of myths and social debates about normality and otherness. She searches for the aesthetic representability of an inner state that oscillates between ecstasy and pain, between visibility and invisibility, and banishes her to a social isolation.
