An Apparent Secret

Eva Könnemann
Das offenbare Geheimnis
Germany 2015 / 29’

An Apparent Secret has already won an award for its innovative form of artistic expression since, in the film, the production process somehow plays a part in the creation of the world being filmed. Eva Könnemann’s attention was captured by symbols characteristic of the town of Emmelsum. However, the director’s decision to travel there was influenced, primarily, by how the residents themselves described Emmelsum as a place to live: “There isn’t very much to say about Emmelsum.”
