a feminist video_poem
by layla zami & lann hornscheidt

this film inspired by the book "feminismus schreiben_lernen" explores quest_ions of language, position_ing and beLong_ing to comm_Unities beyond heteronormative mainstream. a unique collaboration between gender studies professor lann hornscheidt and filmmaker layla zami, it stresses intertwined aspects of gender and race. this challenging mix of poetic documentary and experimental essay portraits people who leave temporary traces of their identities and politics in their surroundings. in the audiovisual medium, the u-topian quests for spaces and words are re-created, suggesting alternative linguistic practices and demanding new ways of seeing_listening.
