What kind of meaning and value in life can be derived from the connections of all things? (Lichun Tseng)

Based in Rotterdam, Netherlands, Filmwerkplaats is an artist-run collective and photochemical film lab dedicated to DIY analogue practice and to filmmaking which embraces the haptic and tactile expressivity to be found in celluloid film’s “stubborn physicality.” Representing Filmwerkplaats, filmed entirely in Rotterdam, the haunting, collectively authored Hometown (2015) interweaves sonic and imagistic contributions from collective members, Nick Aberson, Lichun Tseng, Esther Urlus and Nan Wang to form a searching and drifting, subtly surrealistic song of life and landscape in contemporary Rotterdam.
