Nathalie Djurberg engages in a cynical game between victim and perpetrator in her claymation film Alles ist gut. At first, the roles seem clearly defined. Four rough and tough-looking men—dressed in blue jeans and plaid shirts—hurl stones down a slope. Their actions are so reckless that they injure themselves. In the process, the stones develop a life of their own, expressing their feelings in comic-like speech bubbles. They encourage each other in passive resistance, thereby rendering themselves potential opponents. The film is accompanied by music by Hans Berg: a synthetic sound the composer developed using the sounds of rumbling stones.
