You just want to give something back quickly at the aldi checkout and run hard naked into the wrong door? They put on makeup in the morning and think that this is their face, until they realize in the evening that this is only my makeup. – if such irritations haunt you more often, then you belong to the "adaptive" ones. Their number is clearly increasing, which is no wonder, given the increasing madness at all levels in this society.
For all those who are not yet completely absorbed by the matrix, there will be a cultural event in april that may help more than hurt: radio influenza will be active again, this time with a film "impressionen anpassungsgestorter" at the utopolis cinema in coburg. And a little bit around it, of course, because one of the creators of radio influenza, ahmet ozer, says it right away: "so me… I do not keep my mouth shut."
And that’s it. Johannes titze and ahmet ozer, two friends from coburg, did not want to keep their mouths shut in the face of said madness, but they also did not want to go on stabbing people in the wounds and stirring things up and so on. One of them, titze, works in television and film and is the father of three children, the other, ozer, has a wild biography of a machine builder, core driller, cowboy, and he doesn’t even know what he has done. Both with a penchant for art, asked themselves how they could transform themselves and the world, how they could gain influence, and so called radio influenza into being around 2012. There were shows between video art and speech rounds with belly dance, in the riding hall, in the weird, in the public space.
And, yes, they want to be contagious, want more people to notice the madness. All this violence on the internet and in reality, the general exhaustion "well, I get burnout just watching TV", ahmet ozer turns head and eyes. What he also plays in the film. He comes to his friend, completely exhausted, asks for advice, gets possible solutions and these are then played in and out in cinematic scenes. "He says, "that’s more like the crazy one between the two of us, johannes tietze explains the constellation "and i am left with the task of sorting out and realizing the situation." technically this happens in the basement studio in coburg north. Everything is self-made, including the music, preferably electronically.
It is not explicitly about coburg, but very much so, there are a lot of influences, many people are involved, they will also find themselves, yes, that’s what it’s all about, participation, get involved, it won’t work without you, the more colorful, the better the event. So the two fall in their enthusiasm into the word. And this is how the film of about 60 minutes was made (or better still in the making), without script, improvising, living. "First we had the date, then the location, i.E. The cinema with the big screen and the small stage in front of it, and then we asked ourselves what we were going to do with it", reports titze. "This approach has been preserved with us, it will be good."
the duo has no budget, after all, they want to remain independent. But the fact that oskar heublein from utopolis is already running constant commercials before the films for this event, which is presented as part of the vhs cinema initiative, makes them very happy.
How the film continues beyond coburg "well, let’s show it here first, let’s see if people like it" titze remains on the ground. After all, titze and ozer see themselves as being responsible to the extent that they will be able to arrange for the film to be shown on the 18th of december. April in any case want to provide further help, at a merchandising booth, with a little music, a few drinks of course…
