The nightmare of adhesive is designed using this method as a parody and pleasure principle. The observational documentary approach that gives ironically the power play his credibility complicit takes part to the fiction of the room. It is only the fictional space of the prison, which ultimately can evoke the stage of a possible freedom


Die Sechste Jahreszeit / TheSixth Season, by Jan Soldat, Documentary, Germany 2015, 35’
