REVIEW FOR TRANSPOSED BODIES - A SHORT FILM FROM GERMANY BY KATJA PRATSCHKE
“This is where my story begins. It’s the story of my two fathers Jan and Jon. It took me a long time to put all the pieces together. And much longer even to tell it."
In Transposed Bodies, the protagonist, Marie, is dating two friends, Jon and Jan. She admires one for his physique, and the other for his intelligence. On the way to meet her parents, the car crashes, and both men’s heads are decapitated. Only Marie can identify which head belongs to which body. Thereafter, a strange medical experiment is carried out, that changes Marie's course of life for good. The story is narrated by the foetus in Marie’s womb.
Katja Pratschke's Transposed Bodies won the Korber Foundation Grant Award, German Association of Freelance Photographers Promotion Prize for the Best Diploma Works in the Field of Photography, and the German Short Film Award in Gold.
