“The events of 9/11 left a trail of smoke that still hasn’t dissipated from the atmosphere and that seems to have irrevocably ‘clouded’ our political vision. A state of affairs like a kind of weather that never passes, a media-borne overcast where smoke trails multiply and coalesce unnoticed and in relation to which we can have no privileged external perspective, no sure ground to stand on.
It was by chance that we discovered Goethe’s remarks on clouds – a friend gave Silvia the text saying it would help her sleep. In fact it did quite the opposite, it was a wake-up call that gave her the idea to make this cinétract. Like many of Goethe’s meteorological observations - inspired by Luke Howard’s pioneering classification of clouds - those of September 11, 1819 are remarkable for their precision, the careful mapping and sorting out of different types of weather phenomena, but above all their sense of measure, the calm certainty that after a storm the sky would clear. The sense of this film lies wholly in the open, multilayered disjunction between the events and times to which it refers. Goethe lived in an epoch when painters had begun to rethink how to paint the sky. Revolution was in the air.” (G.T.)
