Ich Armer Mensch

A Film by Bastian Wilplinger

Synopsis

I, WRETCHED MAN
A man, caught in a vicious circle of self-accusation and self-pity, tries to find relief by surrendering to a higher entity. Bach’s Cantata No. 55 and the ancient tradition of Kinbaku, the Japanese art of Bondage are soundtrack and visualization of the journey through the man’s day and his mind.
