From the director of the celebrated documentary REVISION
Philip Scheffner has created a distinct form of political thinking in his films that
enables a redistribution of visibility and invisibility. He creates complex image
and soundscapes, interweaves stories, and meticulously follows traces that
constantly open him up in new directions.
