Ulrike Ottinger

Still Moving: Under Snow, 2011


Under Snow is one of Ulrike Ottinger’s most beautiful films, with her camera patiently observing daily life in the snow-bound landscapes of northwestern Japan. As with the earlier Johanna d’Arc of Mongolia, Ottinger blends documentary footage with performance; here this plays out through Kabuki sequences relaying the tale of students Takeo and Marko. Their journey through the past and repeated encounters with the present find them wondrously transformed with help from a beautiful vixen fox. The film is narrated in English by the American critical theorist Lawrence A. Rickels, a noted interpreter of Ottinger’s work.
