MY THROAT, MY AIR

MY THROAT, MY AIR

Set in Munich’s petty-bourgeois Westend, MY THROAT, MY AIR documents life at home with former Fassbinder actor, Warhol collaborator, and horror movie director Ulli Lommel. Rather than shooting a straight documentary portrait of this bohemian household, Fahrenholz prefers to follow the narrative impulses of Lommel’s stepchildren, inviting the possibility of a strangely self-fictionalizing
realism. Lost in serious play, the kids improvise hypnotic death scenes while their mother claims to come from a planet where everything is “ethereal and incorporeal.” As parent-child relations are un-scripted and re-scripted on the fly, the dilated time of a collective daydream is punctuated by the ordinary sounds of an electric toothbrush, vacuum cleaner and piano.
