Poetry film
Sina Seiler

Elefant is an experimental performance film based on the poem of the same name by Sina Seiler. The poetry film visualizes inner space that the poem metaphorically expresses with words: A house as a symbol for one’s self and the various rooms as voices of the unconscious, feelings and thoughts.
