Es geht ein dunkle Wolk herein

Oliver Wörner

"Es geht ein dunkle Wolk herein, mich deucht, es wird ein Regen sein //Regen aus den Wolken, wohl in das grüne Gras” (A dark cloud is coming,I think there will be rain // rain out of the clouds into the green grass).

The events in this regional film of the special kind seem as anachronistic as the 16thcentury folk song cited above. A small piece of land in the Odenwald region with less than 300 inhabitants appears to be suspended in time. It seems like the industrialization of agriculture has not happened yet: Here, a farmer’s family still works in the same way as 50 years ago. In the midst of summery green meadows, the “three Hübners”perform their tasks with unwavering serenity. 

Self-directed in a loving manner, this unobtrusive and calm film is produced by the film professor (emeritus) Helmut Herbst from Offenbach.
