Stop Motion – a dancer as filmmaker refrains from superfluous movement in a villa in Brittany, giving way to an individual as well as social state described by the French philosopher Paul Virilio as “polar inertia”. Frame by frame by frame, Paul Wenninger makes the rounds standing still, in an initially completely empty salon, with his back perpetually turned to the walls – and above all, to the windows: A stormy time seems to fly by while the relationship between outside and inside gets shaken up, even if the views “out” granted to the observer largely consist of projections: trees, beaches, parks shot in high-speed, time-lapse mode.
