video, 3:50 min

At the beginning of the 20th century, the German photographer August Sander created the series of photographs "People of the 20th Century (Menschen des 20. Jahrhunderts)". The seven-chapter publication was a photographic cross-section of the German nation. Its last part, "The Last People", was devoted to the peripheries of society - people with physical and mental disabilities, old people, recluse.

"The Last People" tries to make a laboratory exploration of the people portrayed there using celluloid tape. Through the possibilities offered by analog photography, he tries to revise Sander's monumental work and liminal socio-cultural places.
