Für einen Moment (One moment in time)

Für einen Moment/One moment in time is the observation of a high dive in montage parallel with the same procedures of children at the age of six to ten years, who are about to learn high-diving.

Situations of high concentration change to moments of great cheeriness. But also fear plays role.

Soundwise a former high-diver remembers his feelings, thoughts and fears. Shot on 16mm.
