BURNING FIRE

FÜÜR BRÄNNT

Michael Karrer • Switzerland • 2023 • 74 min. • Hybrid Fiction

SYNOPSIS

Three groups, their dynamics and moods over the course of a day. In unspectacular scenes from everyday life the group is shown as an intimate space, where like in an entangled set of gears, thousands of small wheels are always meshing together. In this simple yet complex interplay, where the individuals are becoming one and split up again, behavioral patterns can creep in as quickly as they dissolve.
