THE MIND OF A WRITER

Joerg Reichardt profiles Wolf Farkas in his latest project. Joerg creates emotion-laden ans portraits as well as captures atmospheric slices of life with both still photography and motion. Enter Wolf’s house, listen to him play music, interact with his family. All captured with the pathos people have come to expect from Joerg.

Here in our episode No. 1 we are right on the trail of someone who has freed himself from the fear of death and sees himself as a writer, with or without a novel. Who is probably in the process of getting closer to himself, that may seem a bit late, but what does that mean anyway? In private, he is saying: “I’m a collector of beginnings”.

The cinematic change of style, between colour and black-and-white material, picks up on the idea of the alternation between real figure and artificial figure, between the perspective views, from life to death, from beginnings to endings and vice versa. 

Wolf Farkas, author, journalist, editor, houseman, father of four children, bohemian, wedding DJ, former publisher. That’s all correct. But at the same time there is something unseen, something undefined.
