Kopfkino is experimental, movement film that revolves around two main ideas. One being, the facades individuals put
on for others. The image we make of ourselves to be seen by the public. The second idea is having the viewer perceive the mover and film from a distorted angle. The camera is put on the floor and
points upwards to the sky, a sheet of plexiglass interjects the camera and dancer creating a distortion in the viewer’s understanding of the depth and surfaces.
Kopfkino is a German word that does not directly translate into English. By definition is means, ‘head cinema’, a day-dream-like feeling of escaping into imaginative thoughts of what could happen in real life situations. For example, watching a cashier ring through your groceries and imagining what it would be like if all of a sudden, a lion crashed through the window and jumped onto the conveyer belt. While the film does not directly relate to the definition of this word, there is a connection between the imaginative states of ideas and visualizing made-up scenarios in your mind.
