“DAHLIENFEUER” (D 2016, 67 min), the new film by our alumnus Stefan Hayn, is shown in the frame of the 13. Dokumentarfilmwoche hamburg at the Kino Metropolis in Hamburg on 6th April 2016, 8pm.
A sunny autumn day in Berlin. In South Neukölln gather the visitors of the Dahlienfeuer, an annual gardening exhibition in Britzer Garten. They admire the colourful blossom, a family getaway seeking rest, some nice hours or the next motive for their photo collection. Between them is the filmmaker. He is less interested in the plants, despite their appealing 4:3 framing. His focus is on the people and their affairs. Polite, almost naïve, questions bring Hayn closer to a sense of life, a moment, that on this day and in this place is in the air and due to the air. A sneak peek that provides insight – into the protagonists’ heads, the state of the nation and the photo calendar for next Christmas. It is also reflection on the act of recording, capturing – and, above all, the question which observations become important
