Oh these Germans!

Now available: [Forgotten Flags] - a Korsakow-film for PC and Mac

Germans think that showing the national flag is sinister. World Cup soccer in 2006 brought about a notable swing. Germans overcame — temporarily — their fear of association with right-wing nationalism. They were proud of their fatherland and put out flags en masse for the first time.

2562 kilometers - Florian Thalhofer and Juliane Henrich travelled through Germany looking for the forgotten flags of the soccer-world-cup and their owners.

The result is the Korsakow-Film [Forgotten Flags] that was just released on DVD-Rom by Mediamatic, Amsterdam. The DVD comes with a bonus-track: [small world] - Florian Thalhofer's first nonlinear photo-film on what it is like to grow up in a small town.

[Forgotten Flags] - DVD-Rom and hard cover magazine with a text by Krystian Woznicki and photos by Juliane Henrich now published by Mediamatic. 20 pages, DVD-Rom:

1000Stories - 8272 miles on a BMW through the United States. The trip is finished but how is it going on? I am currently working on a Korsakow-Film about my adventures in America, but that will take a while. If you are interested what my sex-life far away from home was like - and you understand German - you might want to check out the interview Tomas Niederberghaus did with me for German weekly Die Zeit:

The interview is online in German language.

The World is a cloud

Recently I figured out how the world works. It is very simple: The world is a coud. (Text now available in English, translation by Anja Tachler, painting by Jim Avignon).

Talk in Cyprus

Film is a lie. Because film is linear. The course of a film is like the flight path of a cruise missile. It has a goal. Film claims that there is just one road one can take in life. But there are many roads. How can you tell through film without the lie of linearity?

Exhibition [Vergessene Fahnen]

Exhibition Vergessene Fahnen (Forgotten Flags)
by Florian Thalhofer and Juliane Henrich
30 March - 11 May 2007
Opening Friday 30 March 18:00

Exhibition with an interactive road movie concerning the need for pride and the fear of symbols. During the 2006 World Cup football, Germans put out their national flag en masse for the first time in years. When the flags were still fluttering six months later, Florian Thalhofer got scared. He tackled his fear with curiosity.

During Vergessene Fahnen we will serve Weißwurst and Bavarian Beer and organise sausage making workshops for vegetarians and a Nina Hagen fanclub night. Opening hours Wednesday, Thursday and Fridaynight from 18.00 to 23.00.


Location: Mediamatic, Post CS Bulding, ground floor, Oosterdokskade 5, Amsterdam

PS: [small world] will also be shown. Beer and sausages directly imported from Schwandorf (www.wolf-wurst.de). The beer ("Das wichtigste Bier auf der Welt") is a real sensation ("Wir liefern nie weiter als wie 150km"). Check out their website: www.naabecker.de very sweet, you can find an image of the person answering the phone, but not the number. It's about beer, not business. Logistics taken care of by organization-genius Kristin Maurer.




[7sons] - even more beautyful!

[7sons] is a Korsakow-documentary about a trip to the Beduines in the Sinai. Together with Mahmoud Hamdy, an artist in Cairo I went on this trip in 2003. This prize-winning Korsakow-film is now available in H.264-codec. This means much better image quality. Check it out!

Forgotten Flags

January 18, 2007
A sea of black, red and gold. The 2006 Soccer World Cup changed the way Germans perceived their own country. What is left over half a year later? Together with Juliane Henrich I traveled 2562 km all over Germany to talk to people that still have a German flag outside their houses. We met astonishing ordinary people with all kinds of different German accents (subtitles in English). Now presented by the Goethe-Instititute as part of the project "Odysseus: A Quest for Europe".
