To The Moon and Back 2017

Interested in the role firefighting plays in the city’s day-to-day emergencies, for a period of nine months Alona Rodeh joined the fire brigade on their 24-hour shifts as an artist in residence. Performed by individual members of the Berlin Fire Brigade, the short film is a non-narrative and somewhat abstract visual collage of portraits of firefighters and their gear in action. Some scenes are based on reality, while others are closer to the surreal, shedding light on the stylized nature of the work, which includes long periods of anticipation and non-doing.
