I dreamed of having a place just like this:

An array of social and professional milieus have grown up at the three prop houses Fundus Studio Babelsberg, Delikatessen Requisiten Fundus Berlin and FTA Props in Hamburg. Each depot has a different logic and its own particular community with its own experiences in dealing with things. Susanne, Miu, Andreas and the three Peters are experts in moving, processing, sorting and presenting up to 100,000 different things.

Lamps, cups, sofas, collection tins, flags, toy fish, plastic flowers, clocks, fake oil paintings and other film props blossom in unimaginable variety

All this stuff changes hands countless times as it migrates from an old-world analogue order to diverse new ones. On the internet film props mutate into descriptions, photos and search terms. In the outside world of “made-up reality” they emerge as quotes from film and TV productions. Turning the focus onto film props reveals an eccentric history of German film, tracing their appearances in such movies as “Kolberg”, “Großstadtrevier”, “Welt am Draht”, “Prüfstand 7” or „Art Girls“, “Finsterworld” or “Sonnenallee”, but also in the daily soap “Verbotene Liebe”. In docu-fiction the props lead BiPOC actor and activist Thelma Buabeng into postcolonial provenance research in the props house and a daily thing-life of African objects.

Director’s Note
„In three prop houses we encountered a new emotion. In the prop warehouses that we filmed it feels as if, among the props – a sofa, an urn, lilies, an „African Woman Holding a Clock“, statues, telephones – a work of mourning has been made possible. The sources of this mourning are indistinct and multifaceted. Each quote opens up a layer of the documentary film, which gradually gives rise to a conceptual docufiction. Among 100,000 things, 20 savvy and experienced workers create a new mental space.“
