Bettina Nürnberg & Dirk Peuker // Franzosensand

D, 2016, color, video,
8.35 min., German, engl. subtitles

The film ‚Franzosensand‘ centers on agricultural settlements founded by the German National Socialitst on newly built dikes on the mudflat of the Wadden Sea (North Sea).

Like a PhD research project, this film enters a hamlet on the German Wadden Sea and links images of an unimportant, tidy-looking landscape to archival material, thereby exposing a painful, hidden history. The film elicits questions about commemorative places and guilty landscapes. (International Filmfestival Rotterdam)
