In his first film produced outside of his native Austria, Johann Lurf uses static shots to document a closed Californian Army base that once served as a military testing range. The uneasy silence of the footage taken using a long-distance lens and the distance maintained in to the compounds filmed highly augment the impression of latent secrets.
Johann Lurf was born in 1982 in Vienna, and studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna from 2002 to 2009.
