In his short documentary SURROUNDED Arne Körner tells a story from pre-digital times. The plot focuses on a record pressing plant.
It is the biography of a thing, a machine. It tells its story with every movement and every sound: the biography of the record, its development from a pile of vinyl grains to a finished record ready to play.
"Arne Körner now takes a completely different path. His attitude and the special appeal of his films SURROUNDED make him believe that things play the leading roles: a machine and what you make with it. Arne Körner brings these things in a way that only the film can speak." (Dr. Michael Girke - film critic)
