Chasing Houses


D 2017
60 min, HD Video

The road movie follows mobile homes accross the highway, connecting the grandiose vastness of the American West to the transitory nature of the homes and the tenuous life stories of their inhabitants. In fragmented stopovers, the film revolves around questions of home, belonging, wealth and the American Dream. Sketched encounters with a former Las Vegas showgirl, a desert recluse, a Navajo couple and a Tea Party member reveal views of hopes and dead-end prospects, class conflicts and the „moving-on mentality“.
