Die Ordnung der Träume / 16mm / Stereo / 2017 / 30 min by Johannes Gierlinger
Two conversations, two cities, the question: is the only revolutionary thought of today, to let the dreamer sleeping?Die Ordnung der Träume is a film that revolves around the (e) motion of human beings, their resistance, their mental activity and the imagination of their worlds. Two people who search for each other, but miss to find, and yet remain in common. Two doubting figures whose conversation is characterized by the different perceptions and the skepticism on the other. In constant presence, a voice sinking into the thoughts of the figures; A traveler, a flaneur, a critical gaze that raises questions itself. An exploration and contemplation of the world; a gaze points at the magician and its deceptions, the faithful and their self-flagellation, the workers who build cities, and children who play young gods. Existential thoughts, dreams, politics and experiences of the characters collide. The individual imagination as intermediary between the ego of the characters and their world. An imagination that creates the doors, which are repeatedly crossed to create a temporary being. Only through the gaze of others, the characters in Die Ordnung der Träume become aware of this fleeting moment of reality. A film as a search for order, in a world of imagination, a world of politics and gazes, a world which per se detract from any order.
