Opera Glasses


Opera Glasses




CATALOGUE TEXT
Opera glasses are necessary to watch the stage from the back rows of the auditorium. If you content yourself with the foyer, you only need alert eyes and instinct: not only for the larger-than-life gestures of musical theatre, but also for the small (self) performances in public space. Checking oneself in the mirror, overzealous re-adjustments of one’s facial expression for a selfie, the inimitable coolness of aging cloakroom attendants – all this is part of the spectacle of visibility.

Lukas Foerster



Awarded with a Golden Dove in the German Competition Short Documentary and Animated Film.
