EMERGENCY ROOM by Stefan Landorf

AUFNAHME, 2001

Since 2010, filmmakers and artists whose works are distributed by arsenal distribution have been meeting regularly to exchange their views. After the next meeting, we will be opening the discussion to the public and presenting our new acquisition:

EMERGENCY ROOM by Stefan Landorf (Germany 2001). In his multi-layered debut, the former doctor turns his attention to a Berlin hospital. Medical terms such as ward visits, doctor's rounds, anamnesis, clinical patterns can also be applied to the film’s structure, which makes the institution appear like an organism being given a check up and prodded in various ways.
