The Dreamed Ones

  • Austria
Audio Tracks 

At centre of this documentary are the two poets Ingeborg Bachmann and Paul Celan, who come to know each other in post-war Vienna. Their vivid postal exchange creates the basis of the film. Two young actors, Anja Plaschg and Laurence Rupp, meet in a recording studio to read the letters. The tumultuous emotions of proximity and distance, fascination and fear captivate them. However, they also enjoy each other’s company, arguing, smoking, discussing their tattoos and favourite music. In this epistolary documentary the past is love, the present is passion and tomorrow is undecided.
