The very title of an aphorism by T. W. Adorno is an image for the plight of many current filmmakers: Asylum for the Homeless. Under the free skies of the free market, the search for a safe place to stay, a niche, is crucial for all those who not only want to produce content, but create works of art. Of course, film is also entertainment! But the fact that anyone who doesn't want to drift into the craft of art is in a constant struggle and yet can never resolve the existing contradictions is what Adorno concludes by describing as follows: "There is no right life in the wrong one." Yet time and again the struggle pays off. Something of significance emerges that interests people, touches them, and teaches them something - conceived by people who do not see Adorno's conclusion as an excuse to resign themselves to what exists. I would like to be such a filmmaker.
