Hella Böhm

Hawk

The feminist video artist Hella Böhm began with diary-like works. In Hawk she retains this free form, but organizes the various observational material in such a way that it encircles the leitmotif of the hunting bird that is central to the film’s imagination. Falconers of both genders, hawks in flight and with prey, in addition music from the most varied contexts. A visual system, a conjunction of images, an eccentric associative movement through the phenomena of the world.
