Rewind Forward


Rewind Forward




CATALOGUE TEXT
A box full of VHS tapes makes Justin Stoneham re-examine his life so far. For a long time he tried to escape his memories: of his charismatic mother, who suffered a stroke when he was four and has been handicapped ever since. Of his own childish self to whom this person was always a scary stranger. Now he risks a first step, with the camera as his shield and transmitter, and meets a woman who has lost her language, but not her sense of humour.

Luc-Carolin Ziemann
