Abendland

Austria 2011, 90 min, Different Languages, Hebrew subtitles

Without narration or interviews, Nikolaus Geyrhalter’s film (Elsewhere; Our Daily Bread) takes the viewer on a fascinating visual journey into the European night. The sun sets in the West, but that does not imply darkness or impaired vision. Instead, Geyrhalter shows how artificial light and surveillance technologies create a new form of night life. His silent and penetrating camera travels from the control panels of London surveillance cameras to mass October-fest celebrations in Munich, continues to a nighttime debate at the European Union Congress and arrives at a newsroom, in which newscasters are surrounded by a plethora of documentation devices. Alongside the apparatus we see the people who operate them, work next to them and are captured by them.
