Josefina Leon A: Letters from the Ersten Stock

Corona Kino

Viewed from the outside, Switzerland appears to be a kind of fictional land, a nearly utopian country where it is difficult to find something that does not work. This impression intensified during the lockdown, especially in contrast to circumstances in other countries. In Letters from the Ersten Stock, correspondence between the first and second floors of a student residence begins as an attempt to practice German and Spanish, the mother tongues of the residents. Language, communication, isolation, coexistence, art production, struggle, friendship, and nostalgia are all addressed against the backdrop of this surreal scenario.
