The remains of the Grand Hotel “Angst” have been abandoned in an enchanting palm garden. Lost Pictures ∞ Lost Memory? brings the hotel back to life and transforms it into a timeless metaphor with hotel guests coming from various countries.
By including intuitive time warps and applying a new and original cinematic approach, this fine art film introduces very diverse but wise individuals. Their experiences, tales and philosophies unite in Hotel “Angst” as a mutual reflection on silence, fear and memory. Overlapping forces and the compulsion to repeat industrial mass destruction, the post-war era, the Mafia, politics, National Socialism, totalitarianism and bureaucracy continue to have a lasting effect
