Making Of Heimat ()
|Documentary - 2013 - Germany|
With HOME FROM HOME - CHRONICLE OF A VISION he aims to continue not only his world famous HEIMAT series but also his earliest works. A whole village in the Hunsrück region of Germany is taken back in time to 1840 by set designers, actors and actresses are cast in full costumes and according to their matching compatibility as a family ensemble. MAKING OF HEIMAT observes all stages in the creation of this challenging film and takes on Edgar Reitz' point of view on filmmaking. And in his case filmmaking means a nearly four hour long afterthought of the "Young German Cinema" movement in digital cinemascope and black and white! The filmmakers strictly followed Edgar's dictum: "Don't do an ordinary making-of but make a film that shows how films are made!"
