Doppelgänger


Doppelgänger


CATALOGUE TEXT
Erich Taschek, filmmaker Michaela Taschek’s father, used to be a fun-loving and sociable man. But then “Eichi” turned into a taciturn loner who locked himself in the cellar to make models and hardly ever left the house. After his death Taschek uses family photos and home movies to invent a wild doppelganger theory that provides a plot for her long lasting feelings of alienation. An essay about disappearance and the power of projection in “documentary” images.
