Werner Nekes
ULIISSES

The most bizarre of cinema trips of the last few years takes us from Dublin to the Ruhr District, from a cinema called Casablanca to a town, no less unreal, called Poona. We encounter both Groucho Marx and Helmut Schmidt, we meet the dispersed protagonists of Homer's ›Odyssey‹, of James Joyce's ›Ulysses‹ and of Neil Oram's experimental play 'The Warp'. Werner Nekes combines these three figures and shows their stories within the history of ›lighterature,‹ the process of writing with light = film. The German avantgarde film scene expert, Dietrich Kuhlbrodt, comments on ULIISSES: »The object of the odyssey is pictorial language as such: learning to see and wanting to see. It ranges from cinematographic archaeology to playful innovations of the latest kind«.
