Film director: Friederike Pezold



In Revolution der Augen, Friederike Pezold has opted for total silence. A silence necessary to regain contact with ourselves and to learn to observe what surrounds us. A silence that in a decisive, revolutionary way contrasts with the confusion, the bulimia of images that we experience every day. At the Diagonale’22.



Toilette is the contemplation of simple everyday actions, the rediscovery of new rhythms, the enhancement of oneself and of the human body, concrete becoming abstract and vice versa. The black and white images are more alive than ever. Actions and details become pure cinema. Cinema and metacinema. At the Diagonale’22.


Lights, colours, extravagant costumes and highly paradoxical situations become the trademark of this precious and unique Canale Grande. Friederike Pezold is not afraid to dare, to have her say, to ‘shout’ her anger – always with a welcome touch of irony and humour – against today’s society, against a latent chauvinism and against what the world of telecommunications has become. At the Diagonale 2021.
