Film Description: 

We are all on the same bus, but some of us are more awake than others. If we consider Einstein’s space-time concept, we end up with an object where everything that happened and everything that will happen, is understood inside. Through it, we are driven by a vehicle, let’s call a bus, completely autonomous, that goes in a single direction, to the front, and has a single window, the rear. This vehicle, astronomer Arthur Eddington called The Arrow of Time. This idea, although depressingly deterministic, is difficult to ignore in view of the already proven plasticity of time, even when we consider Heisenberg’s Uncertainty Principle, where the act of observing something, alters its result. A concept that does not invalidate a deterministic Universe, rather, allows the Interpretation of Many Worlds by Hugh Everett, also known as Multiverse.

The theme of balance was an important one in Paul Klee’s art, and it was a subject which he also emphasised to his students during his time as a teacher at the Bauhaus. Several of his works feature a tightrope walker, and in a lecture Paul Klee stated; ‘The tightrope walker with his pole is a “symbol of the balance of forces.” He holds the forces of gravity in balance (weight and counterweight). He is a pair of scales.’ This film responds to and dialogues with Paul Klee’s lithograph “Der Seiltänzer”.

“Lucid dreams” is the first episode of a planned series “Berlin Faces”, which deals with the important players in the Berlin scene, artists, activists, athletes, without whom Berlin has no heart, soul, and face of its own as the city. Can the city have the heart at all and what is there? We are considering this in the series with the Berliners.

I make my first episode about the artist Lucy. Born in Sicily, he has been at home in Berlin for over 10 years. As a renowned techno DJ, music producer, and label owner Luca Mortellaro, he travels a lot all over the world but always likes to come back home. However, his perception of this city has changed a lot over the years and he no longer recognizes the people, the “vibe” and everything that seemed so attractive to him a few years ago in Berlin.
