Inhalt

To rotate around one’s own axis can be cumbersome and at the same time it can make one light weighted. It is a repetitive movement and does not go forward. It is never linear but still it can make things change or transcend them. Spinning generates energy, creates an outside and an inside. It is stagnant and fast; it takes place on a micro and macrocosmical level. Everything is inconsistent.

"Spin" is an experimental film about “spinning” in the field of tension of experimental physics (science) and Sufism (mysticism/Islam). It deals with different concepts of truth and their complexities. It also deals with the conception of body and spirit as instruments to experience and generate wisdom and with the space that emerges between sciences and spirituality. It looks at their borders, the borders of the tangible and perceivable for the human being.

Starting in a salt desert, fictional invisible characters meet, searching for a placing of their being. Poems, interviews with physicists, philosophers, a Sufi cheikha, a semazen (dervish), and fictional dialogues are interwoven with an audiovisual exploration of rotation, examining different forms of doubting, differentiating, and thinking.
