RietveldTV by Baha Görkem Yalim: Timeless Life
Timeless life is a movement towards Turkish/German writer Tezer Özlü’s literary work. In quest of channeling a writers oeuvre, the film interrogates new non-narrative forms, refusing to use any spoken language. Life is taken as a journey where, even when there is a sense of movement, the only destination is oneself. Özlü’s description of train journeys are taken as the connecting vessel while the scenes, locations and other characters are ever changing. The lack of a plot is balanced with a constant positioning of the self in relation to its surroundings; a search for meaning. In this existentialist and slightly absurdist film the artist is telling a life’s story in which the real, the constructed and the imagined are not letting go of each other.
