BATTLEFIELD

SYNOPSIS

 

Inspired by the quote of Austrian Expressionist, Oskar Kokoschka: „ Weeds are nature's opposition to the governance of gardeners“, BATTLEFIELD shows the inner life of a military base as a microcosm that seems to have fallen out of another time. Soldiers focus meticulously on gardening instead of preparing themselves for war. The grass-green battlefield gets a military buzz cut. The film depicts a dreamlike look into an imaginary future, where barracks appear as well maintained open-air museums. The tanks remain as relics, silent but admonishing. Some of them still work.
