Captured at Berlin’s infamous abandoned Tempelhof Airport, ‘Weight’ depicts contrasting stories.

As one person attempts to keep a kite afloat,  this is intercepted with another person struggling to buoy a kite from the ground, with subtitles addressing issues of discontentment, consequences and disappointment.

The difference between the moving image scenes and the narration, highlights the juxtaposition between these opposite concerns.

Although they appear not to belong together, the parallels in their underlying themes weave them together to symbiotically offer the same gestures.
