ENGLISH TITLE
Documentation Report

Documentation Report is an ongoing film project aiming to display and interact with the sites of surveillance and power around the world. In its first iteration the protagonist, wearing a hat modeled after a surveillance camera, moves through Berlin and carries out performative actions in front of cultural and government institutions, for example the building of the federal intelligence service. She seems to communicate with the real surveillance cameras surrounding her. Echoing the purposeful gesture of colonial exploration, the fictional human camera and the real camera capturing her are visually seizing either the remains or the heights of a strange civilization.
Shot with a camera that doesn't record sound the film is silent like surveillance video. The shutter underwent a modification to admit more light, which gives the images its gauzy quality and coincidentally also approximates video. The medium of 16mm is related to issues of power. While data protectors and police argue over the legal retention time of digital surveillance recordings, 16mm negatives, due to their longevity, are still in use for capturing important government documents for archival purposes.
