Only Six Can Play This Game

A Film by Eva Meyer and Eran Schaerf

2022, 43 minutes, English

It depends on who you are if an entrance is closed or open to you. If you enact your coincidence as an incidence you may outmanoeuvre this mechanism. This shows in the cast of a card game, in its ritualistic inclusion or exclusion of cards in order to complete a given number to a group or not. This shows also in the game with Kafkas „Fellowship“, which counts five people and does not know how to exclude a rejected sixt person which keeps coming back. Is he the first coincidence of each person’s biography, his being born anywhere? Is he talking with an accent that can foil an access since biblical times? Can assimilation through language, clothes, gestures help? These are the questions of a guest in a New York apartment house, whose doorman is not accepting his „how are you“ as a mere password. The coincidence of their encounter transforms the entrance into a rehearsal room for stories that migrate through persons, places, times, and remix their affiliations.
