Over the past half-century, two tendencies have dominated independent, artisanal filmmaking. One of these is the fascination with the material artifacts of cinema´s history: it is often called »found-footage filmmaking« and sometimes »recycled cinema«. Filmmakers working in this vein are often archeologists of cinema, aesthetically and/or ideologically engaging with the work of earlier generations of filmmakers of all kinds.

"'My Seven places' starts at the moment I was evicted from several places which are dear to me. They served me well as homes, both as place for living and working. This was the start of my urban wandering, which would take me ten years - a journey of 300.000 kilometers - before returning just about to my starting point. The adventure was both physical and metaphysical.
Klaus Telscher is one of the most important German experimental filmmakers of the 1980s and 90s. His sophisticated work is atmospherically dense, playful as well as caustic, and his complex filmic structures are matched by his subtle photography.
This documentary diary was shot between 2005 and 2009 on four different continents, as a subjective journey into the universe of experimental cinema. It is an exploration of the many alternative film forms developed by innovative figures such as Jonas Mekas (USA), Peter Kubelka (Austria), Guy Sherwin (UK) among many others. These paths of discovery lead us to encounters with numerous production and distribution institutions created specifically for experimental films.
