Marc COMESUp There (Jivan) 2003
Narrates the passion of 13 year old Jivan. Water as violence, as mechanics, a futurist bathtub as an amniotic sac, the intensities of light. Jivan opens up his eyes. He folds his felt and steps into the open.
"»Jivan« is a psychological art work in the tradition of european experimental filmmaking in which sound and image create an intermediate relationship. The film succeeds in using new aesthetic expressions for traditional poetic forms of film-making. The work manages to turn layers of materials and surfaces into moments of perception and consciousness." Werkleitz Award Osnabrück 2003
