The Wall

Today we present two experimental films by Maria Rohof.
The short experimental film The Wall depicts the filmmaker’s view of a brick wall from her room window. Facing it from seven meters away for five years now she developed a fascination for this architectural element:
“I see grey, brown, pink and orange.
I see birds picking insects between the bricks.
I see a tree that has been cut of trying to grow out of the wall again.
I see one brick left alone in the middle of a large gap.
I see the young ivy growing over it.
I see crumbled mortal trying to hold the bricks together.
I see bricks balancing on each other.
I see the change.
Over and over again.
I see a wall that’s alive.”
