"I'm quite convinced that cooking is the only alternative to filmmaking," Werner Herzog says while eating his shoe. Anyone who can cook can also make films, says the filmmaker and eccentric Peter Kubelka. We don't want to go that far. However, we agree with Kubelka that both are physical manifestations that trigger thoughts in the head of the spectator or eater. It is necessary to master craftsmanship, creativity, courage and intuition in order to create something surprising, both in the kitchen and on the film set. No wonder that many filmmakers have a gifted chef hidden inside them. For the second time, the filmmakers will show off their skills at Bildrausch: for the Baselbased producer and director Frank Matter "cooking is a moment of ultimate concentration, a calm island in the hectic to and fro of everyday life: just like meditation, it empties the mind. And this creates the space for new creative ideas." We are looking forward to both: the fish soup and the projects that it will give birth to!
