Image Filmcollage by Margit Czenki / D 1999 / 60 min /

music/sound collage: Ted Gaier, Schorsch Kamerun
with:
Park Fiction activists, the clever Hafenrand-Club and Schorsch Kamerun as a salesman.

The abundant paradise of an arabian garden. Oranges glow from the deepest green. An ultramarine blue arcade. Dreamers listening to promising voices, „Desires will leave home, finish the empire of boredom and make an end to the administration of misery.“ Jubiliant fanfare for the waterrcoloured archives of wishes: a strawberry shaped treehouse, a bathtub treehouse, a dock-as-swimmingpool, a poodle shaped hedge, an open-air-cinema, moveable platforms with artificial palmtrees, a hedge-maze and a slide over Hafenstrasse.

Margit Czenki shows the clever struggle of a small group, carried out from a seemingly inferior position. In bright colours she shows the glamorous ideas for a park at the banks of Hamburg’s harbour, that St. Paulians achieved against a big corporate housing project. A filmcollage about a park that doesn’t exist yet; about art & politics, about nomadic warfare and about radiant desires. About the city – and what it could be. About very different people and the power of a group that produces ideas and works together over a longer period of time.
Park Fiction, a public-art-project and a stage for the wishes of a community: a turkish girl designs a youth-café with letterboxes for teenagers whose letters are controlled by their parents. A russian couple want an Avenue of Friendship, lined by rosebushes. And a woman reads park-poetry in her freshly painted flat.

The filmcollage juxtaposes documentary and narrative elements. It is structured by a strain on Parks & Politics – on gardens and their ideological backgrounds. Filmed on Super 8 in Marrakech, Coney Island and St. Pauli, Park Fiction was blown up to 16mm with an outdated trick-camera, later combined with videofootage, drawings, suggestive collages and photos from the wishproduction. There is no original sound. The Imagecollage is juxtaposed with an independent soundcollage: czech pop songs, Los Ninos del Parque and Eissler-samples. The soundtrack is by Ted Gaier and Schorsch Kamerun.
