Johannes Birringer says of his work: ‘The filmic treatment of Kafka’s story works through an undercurrent – a romantic texture made up of Wagner’s Parsifal (Amfortas’s wound) and Stifter’s description of countryside forests (Mappe meines Urgrossvaters) – to shift the imagery a little to a psychogeographic recital of living in one’s wound, a wound that from a distance looks like a ‘Bergwerk’ (coal mine), a familiar sight in the region where I grew up and where my great grandfathers used to work’.
