We are very happy to send out our congratulations to Johannes Krohn, whose film “A Day In My Life” was elected by our Jury as the Best Short Film of the month of December’.
Synopsis: Johannes Krohn is a Berlin based Illustrator und musician. His film is an experiment. The subject – Metropolis – is approached equally by music and drawing. Krohn has aimed to take up the performative character of music and to make the emergence of a drawing – a reality – the core of his story. A day in life means in this case not a particular day in life, but rather the partial units of life that humans are able to grasp. Krohn juxtaposes this naïve view with the city and it’s smallest partial unit: The human, who cannot hold on or find an overview. Referring to «Symphony of a Metropolis» this work can be seen as «Folksong of a Metropolis.»
