Dat Likwid Land
(GER/NLD/USA 2016, HD, 29’, English)
At a bus stop, an invisible, laconic narrator finds a red notebook with the inscription “Ignatius Reilly. Journal of a Working Boy”. On the search for the journal‘s owner, who describes himself as an outsider, the film travels from Rotterdam to New Orleans, and into a strange, paradoxical country consisting of cemeteries and cypress swamps… For this film, which features his typical humorous manner, Dwyer won the project pitch of KINO DER KUNST 2015.
