Filmmaker Hans Scheugl could have started a new life with his friend John in the USA, 50 years ago and reflects about an imaginary existence, that never came to be. An ‘A’, out of focus, on a pink background – the first letter of a journey that does not lead to ‘Z’, even if includes many letters: these are of a postal rather than an alphabetical nature. The letters exchanged connect two worlds, one lived in the USA and the other in Vienna. The signpost ‘A’ marks a house somewhere in America that was located by filmmaker Hans Scheugl using Google Street View, and it represents the unexpected rediscovery of a nearly forgotten friend named John.
