Norden, 2004, 7:15 (2:02) min., sound, colour [VIDEONALE.12]

Engaged in a search for a love that is just as removed from reality as the path to the stars is long. Imprisoned in daily life, with no courage to step forward, Britt Dunse's protagonist stumbles through his memories and longs for his beloved, so far away, to appear. „Now I wait, hoping for another miracle to come“ - persisting in this hope, the young man deals with everyday matters, overwhelmed by trivialities which in his view of things should yield to love, but which in reality stubbornly take up space. Between confetti, post-its and paper boats, they meet each other for a brief moment, only to go off afterwards in different directions. „Hold me tight, before it's too late“, sing the paper cranes - symbols of his yearning - and fly out of everyday life in an attempt to find the way to her. Norden is a romantic, melancholy interpretation of love and its realization, of inequality and failure, where matter-of-fact residing and living encounters a mental world made out of animated origami.
