Interrogating the medial materiality of online found-footage, the video reworks the 1956 heimat (homeland) film Wo der Wildbach rauscht, isolating the cultural-political and historically loaded imagery associated with an idealised but fragmented German-romantic landscape, and exploring sentimentalism, kitsch, repression and anxiety. This is a companion piece to the video work The Wind on the Heath.
