Two hands bend up, slowly at first, then sharply, as if directing the ground to lift. Up and down again, up and down. With The Soft Bit, Jana Irmert explores movement, sound and image in a cinematic way. Connecting the internal and the external, the fragmented and the whole, Lingji Hon’s captivating Taiji quan inspired performance forms the gravitational
center, pulling the camera towards her. While Jana Irmert’s atmospheric music leads the viewer into an unknown world, cinematographer Tobias Schuetze’s imagery is embraced by an experimental montage that plays by its own rules – revealing the interconnectedness of all elements.
