Haus Bucken near Wuppertal is a home for adults affected by autism and is designed to give them a place to live for the rest of their lives. The documentary filmmaker Wolfram Seeger approached the inhabitants gently and with a lot of patience. It is an immersion into a bizarre world that can sometimes be difficult to bear.
The autistic people often seem like actors in the theater of the absurd. However, it is a play without a director and nobody knows what moves them. Seeger, who operated the camera himself, managed to get footage that lets viewers feel how severe the inhabitantsâ€™ disabilities are and how exhausting it can be to share a life with autistic people.
