Soundtrack for STILLE STADT
STILLE STADT (trans. Silent City) is an experimental feature which inverts the city symphony form through an Everyman on the verge of a mid-life crisis, who goes through his life of routine both stricken and sustained by opera arias which stand in for his thoughts and emotions that only he (and the audience) can hear. It is an allegory of modern existence that blends the real with surreal to film explore how urban dwellers lose their connection with the environment, people, and praxis; and the suppression and containment of those lost connections by consumerism, distraction, and interiorization.
