Der SchornsteinseglerThe Chimney Swift

Filmforum, Germany 2020, 5 Min., engl. OV, ger. UT

Sometime in the nineteenth century, a child climbs up a chimney while a bird flies into it to build a nest. It’s an encounter that can only end badly. A British chimney sweep describes his everyday life in which he forces children to work, and yet he’s also talking about himself. It’s a vicious circle from which there seems to be no escape.
