First Time [The Time for All but Sunset – Violet]
Director: Nicolaas Schmidt, Narrative, Germany, 49 min
We listen to music and are on the way. In doing so, we see things and the world differently than before. So that things don’t always go on like this, but may become better: Two boys meet on a train ride. Something is born – not much and yet everything. A boy is sitting at the window of the Hamburg U3 circle line subway. He looks into the setting sun with closed eyes, orange-red glowing through both eyelids. Passengers go and come – one sits down. The two sit silently across from each other, neither of them getting off the train. The circle line runs once around the city. Station after station. The light is alternating outside and inside. Passengers and protagonists are amid noise and music. Glances, silence, a KitKat is broken, a Coke is drunk. Outside: Sunset and Nightfall are interrupted again and again by tunnels, platforms, posters&facades. The train passes the boarding stop again. The timeline of love could be a circle. Enjoy a Golden Hour Carousel Ride. A Common Sensations Music Movie.
