Why? (Canada | 2015, 2 min)
Directed by: Sonia Suvagau
Cast: Composer: Sebastian Hugeneck Poetry/Performer: Joachim Waibel
"WHY?” is a thought provoking short film created collaboratively by In the Trench Productions as a co-venture between an artist, poet, filmmaker and composer who each share a compelling interrogative response to our inherited history. Looked at retroactively, the First World War becomes more and more senseless as history progresses and yet ironically its shimmering image-echoes grow louder as it recedes further into the past. This is especially the case when distressing photographic imagery is sensitively choreographed through contemplating the distance between human beings: the very trenches that separate us.
