Philip Scheffner has created a distinct form of political thinking in his films that enables a redistribution of visibility and invisibility. He creates complex image and soundscapes, interweaves stories, and meticulously follows traces that constantly open him up in new directions. THE HALFMOON FILES is a film on the complex relationships between politics, colonialism, science and media. A film about gaps, omissions and the construction of history. In short: a ghost story. DAY OF THE SPARROW is a political wildlife film. It centers around a country where the border between war and peace fades.
