Heimat is a Space in Time

HEIMAT IS A SPACE IN TIME follows the biographical traces of a tattered family throughout the 20th century. People who once happened to find each other, then lost each other. Their remaining children, grandchildren now disappear. It’s about speaking and silence. First love and lost luck. Fathers, mothers, sons, brothers, affairs, hurt and joy in changing landscapes, which carry different, intertwined traces of time. A collage of pictures, sounds, letters, diaries, notes, noises, voices, fragments.
