GER 2014, 84 min
A political manifesto in feature film format.
Asta Andersen is a young art curator, a real go-getter, who is preparing a new exhibition on cinema in Berlin. In order to make it happen, however, she needs financing. And so she pays a visit to various cultural departments and institutions and also uses her own contacts in an attempt to secure the needed funds.
ASTA UPSET contemplates the boundaries of cinema by referring to non-cinematic forms of discourse, such as theater, performance art, commercials, academic lectures, video installations, and even sitcoms. In a self-reflective manner, an artistic mosaic is presented that sheds light on the current relationship between art, cinema, economics, and politics.
