Gestern gings noch, Herr Schürmann

A Film by Jan Krämer

Synopsis

YESTERDAY IT WASN’T TOO BAD, MR. SCHÜRMANN. “This is the third and most interesting part of my life“, said Mr Schürmann. He is wandering through the corridors, searching for new tasks. In former times, Mr Schürmann read, he enjoyed taking pictures and filming. His new world is rather clean and cold – the atmosphere of a hospital with patience who never leave. Since two months, he lives in a closed nursing home for dementia. “I don’t recognise my own logic, something exploded. We have to support each other. Because, the first does not know why, the second does not participate and the third one knows how it works.“
