A TRAGIC TALE OF FIRE WATER AND RADON A.K.A JET SETTERS / دجية سييتيرز

WITH FRANZISKA PIERWOSS
VIDEO-8MM ON HD 5'03 / BAD GASTEIN 2014 LEBANON-GERMANY

This video was shot in Bad Gastein (Austria) inside the local Congress Center, a modernist concrete building with red interior, built in the 1960's by Gerhard Garstenauer that has been deserted since the 1990s. Garstenauer, one of the few representatives of alpine modernism created a building in stark contrast to the belle epoque environment of the small city that once used to serve as a hotspot for aristocrats and politics since its emergence as a spa location during the 18th and 19th century. Buildings of both eras are now left behind in a desolate state, making them seem utterly historical. The video functions  as a trailer for a jet set crime film shot on super8 color negative film.
