When pausing to look at a detail my gaze drifts off to something unexpected. The other day I saw Claudia von Alemann’s first film Einfach [Simple] (FRG, 1966) for the first time. It is about the attempt to capture something that cannot be grasped. Not unlike language – the way we fumble our way through the right words to describe something – it’s worth it to stutter for a moment in order to locate the closest sentence even at the risk of coming across as fragmented or chaotic.
