»I wanted to give a certain impact to thinking about life and death.«
Valentin Hitz in an interwiev with Cineuropa about HIDDEN RESERVES
«The idea of not being permitted to die.»
Valentin Hitz’s Hidden Reserves imagines a world where private life has been pervaded by technology and society sharply divided into rich and poor. A world where the human body is exploited for data storage even after natural death. However, in this world drained of mutual trust, color and emotion, which prefers to entrust life and death to insurance companies, a hidden potential for resistance is beginning to appear. An interview with director Valentin Hitz and producer Oliver Neumann.
