Sonnenland

Installation
(Film 16mm/DVD, 16 minutes, looped)

In his video Sonnenland, Paul Divjak addresses a sensitive subject. He filmed handicapped children, showing the viewer the fine line between documentation and voyeurism via a sociopolitically controversial subject. Rather than violating privacy, his camera captured the direct, playful, and authentic interaction between those involved in the video shoot.
