Experimental documentary, 2021, 15 min., HD, 4:3, black & white
Directed, narrated, edited and animated by Felix Klee
Premiere at DOKLeipzig 2021


You can't bring back a dead horse, but there are ways to step into a place that was lost.
"Homesick Lungs" is an experimental farewell. The film delves into the lungs of a dying horse and the history of a sold family farm. 3D animations, screen recordings and documentary footage combine to form an essay on reconstructed memory. In the end, the wind brushes through virtual nettles.
