StadtThe City

Filmforum, Germany 2015, 89 Min., no dialogue

A train enters the station, a crane operator gives a tired look, a little girl draws figures in the sand; a babble of voices in a call centre, police running to a call out, a beam of light pierces the darkness in a sewer, fireworks, people dancing in the night. A big city is a gigantic mechanism that is always in flux. One day after the next, people follow their own rhythm, searching for an open space. Timo Grosspietsch’s film is a narrative-free portrait of a day and a night in Hamburg that takes the audience to some unusual places. It’s an enthralling journey and award-winning jazz pianist Vladislav Sendecki, along with the NDR broadcast orchestra, has created an unusual soundtrack that ranges from classic jazz number to surprising spheres of sound.
