Zeit (German for time) is a video to Christian Löffler’s “Swift Code”. Using the words of Marcus Roloff (English subtitles available) the short deals with the Holocaust and the related generation gap I find myself in. What happens when the contemporary witnesses of the Third Reich slowly disappear and all we know about the genocide is based on textbooks? Zeit is about how bitterly easy it is to forget. Hand-drawn illustrations are placed on an endless canvas, resembling a wall. At the end cycles repeat and reveal what seems to be forgotten.
