FOUR PARTS OF A FOLDING SCREEN

by Anthea Kennedy, Ian Wiblin

synopsis

Based on documents found in Berlin archives, 'Four Parts of a Folding Screen' explores exclusion, statelessness and the legalised theft and sale of everyday family possessions by the National Socialist regime. A voice, enigmatic and sometimes uncertain, foretells of, relates and recalls the routine processes of injustice and their legacy: the creation of a diaspora of household objects, scattered amongst buildings that no longer exist. As the camera probes the secrets of ordinary spaces, streets and buildings around the city of Berlin, semblances of a person and a history begin to emerge and coalesce.
