HEIMAT IS A SPACE IN TIME picks up the biographical pieces of a family torn apart through the end of the 19th and into the 20th century. It is about people who by chance found each other, only then to lose each other. Now it is their descendants, their children and grandchildren who are beginning to disappear.

This is all about speaking and silence. First love and happiness lost. Fathers and mothers, sons and brothers, the affairs, the hurt and the joy in landscapes of transition – each bearing the intertwining, hallmarks of their times. A collage of images, sounds, letters, diaries, notes, voices, fragments of time and space.

HEIMAT IS A SPACE IN TIME is a journey of reflection of time and the love held within using sounds, images and language. Yet some of it shall remain forever lost.

The material used in this film is what remains of my family. The remnants of those I knew, whose circumstances I had been part of or had otherwise experienced. Remnants that mirror history. A history that is just as much my own.

“Masterful and uncompromising.” —Libération

“A monumental film.” —CineEuropa

“A truly great epic; such is Heise's mastery that you find yourself on the verge of tears, laughing out loud and shaking your head in wonder.” —The Telegraph

“The backbone of the 2019 Berlin Film Festival.” —Der Spiegel

“An extraordinarily intense work of documentary art creating its impact with quite simple aesthetic means. Heise has produced a key work of German history.” —Modern Times
