Anything Can Happen

Experimental short, 2013

Experimental short, 2013

HD video, US/AT, 4:13 min.
Filmed in Val Verde, California



Nighttime. Dogs are barking in the distance. We hear motor sounds and the headlights of a car clicking on and off, and see little sceneries along the road briefly illuminated. An unseen driver connects these momentary landscapes. The headlight beams remain the only light source and actual character throughout the approximately four minutes of rhythmic imagery, in an eerie audiovisual composition. Nothing is incidental, but at any moment Anything Can Happen.

German synopsis
Nacht. Hunde bellen in der Ferne. Wir hören Motorengeräusche und das klickende Ein- und Ausschalten der Scheinwerfer, während kurze Szenerien entlang der Straße aufleuchten. Ein unsichtbarer Fahrer führt durch die lose Erzählung und verbindet die temporären Landschaften. Die Scheinwerfer verbleiben als einzige Lichtquelle und tatsächliche Protagonistinnen in der unheimlichen, rhythmisch komponierten Montage. Nichts ist zufällig, aber zu jedem Zeitpunkt gilt: Anything Can Happen.
