What remains? Biographies leave marks. The passage of time does, too. Thomas Heise examines how the two react to one another in Heimat ist ein Raum aus Zeit. The film follows the biographies of a torn family through the late nineteenth and ensuing twentieth centuries. In a collage of pictures, sounds, letters, diaries, notes, noises, voices and fragments it reflects on time and the love within it, the people, in sounds, images and language. There’s always a remnant that doesn’t add up.

Guest: Thomas Heise (part of 100 Years of Now)
