Staged Documentary

"One way to get to know a city is to find out how its residents work, how they love, how they die." A.Camus PANDEMIC 2020. THAT'S SHOCK AND RELAXATION - APOCALYPSE LIGHT. Film location Berlin, the city I was in when the shutdown 2020 was announced. The narrowness that became widespread, streets, squares, apartments, people I usually passed, drowned in noise and faded from action. Schöneberg, Kreuzberg, Mitte, the Wannsee. The time levels: present, past, future. My perspective: 2030. The present: the beginning of the end. The past: the Oran by Albert Camus.

URBAN IKARUS, my new film.

Coronography Project

Walk through the void

Coronography Project at Dokfest in Munich!

CORONOGRAPHY - an interactive collective project by filmmakers from all over the world Nothing has been the same since the outbreak of the new coronavirus. Life has changed - also for filmmakers. Time for numerous members of AG DOK and docfilmpool to join forces and collect short movies and cinematic fragments. Inspired by this CORONOGRAPHY was developed to show the many small and big stories about the pandemic and its consequences, in a constantly evolving collective project.

Until the shutdown in March 2020, about half a million people visited Berlin every day. One of the hotspots was the Brandenburg Gate. The subway used to be full of tourists.

My snapshot "Walk through the Void" in the underground of the Brandenburg Gate impressively shows the sudden emptiness of this otherwise crowded place.

Soundtrack FEAR by Donald Rubinstein


"A wonderful film with which Susann Reck allows an impartial, curious look at six mentally impaired people and what moves them. As a filmmaker, she returns to the place of her childhood - a home for her mentally ill people founded by her parents."

March 14th I´m a panelist of a panel about the Queer Gaze

"Queer visibility is a problem in comics," claims literary and comic critic Stefan Mesch. And the ComFor Society for Comics Research also complained in 2019 of a "lack of diversity". Why is that? Radio mephisto 97.6. asked in a panel discussion about the comic artist Maurizio Onano, the comic critic Lara Keilbart, the publisher of the Avant publishing house Johann Ulrich and the author and director Susann S. Reck, who is involved in the Queer Media Society."
