Description

Written and Directed By Liz Rosenfeld Produced By nowMomentnow The Surface Tension Trilogy is comprised of three experimental videos tracking the rise and fall of the Weimar Era in Berlin through the perspectives of Frida Kahlo & Anita Berber, Hannah Höch, and Leni Riefenstahl & Eva Braun, each of them women who lived and worked in Berlin during this time. Experimenting with anachronistic modes of storytelling, these short films also play with queering the tropes of fact-based historicization through the director's choice of casting her friends. Clearly shot in present-day Berlin, the choice to enact stories, relationships, and experiences that "may" have happened suggests that history is made through the untold intimate moments of relationships in a certain time and space. Posing questions concerning the usefulness of nostalgia, history as lived experience and the way in which political and creative economy unfolds, The Surface Tension Series looks at how history is discursive, hidden, and lived.
