Everything the Power of the World does, is done in a circle […] The earth is round like a ball, and so are all the stars […] Birds make their nests in circles […] The sun comes forth and goes down again in a circle […] Even the seasons form a great circle in their changing […] The life of a man is a circle from childhood to childhood, and so it is in everything where power moves […]
Black Elk, a medicine man and a visionary of the Oglala Sioux

Many beliefs and cultures perceive circle as a pure, divine shape. Da Vinci’s Vitruvian Man, positioned in a circle, symbolises perfect proportions. In Fluchtpunkt, the recurring and accidental circular patterns pervade the out-of-date film. They reinforce the ironic take on anthropocentrism as seen through the silently observed Stutthof concentration camp. Fluchtpunkt takes as its starting point traumatic occurrences in my family history to explore an auto-ethnographic impulse through a detached approach to filming.
