Franz Mueller’s Wire Spring (Franz Muellers Drahtfruehling) is a short story composed by German Dada artist Kurt Schwitters in 1922. It was translated, adapted to theater, and later to film, by artist and translator Roi Alter.
Schwitters’s story revolves around a man who is simply standing there, and by doing so causes the outbreak of chaos and revolution. That man is Franz Mueller, whose character comes to symbolize Art, Disobedience, Inefficiency, and in a way also Schwitters himself, who as the only dAdA artist in his home town of Hanover, was regarded a weirdo, and had no community of other dada artists where he could have blend in.
Starring in the movie are artist and performer Styrmir Örn Guðmundsson (IS/DE), musician and composer Anat Spiegel (IL/NL), and actor and clown Daniel Rovai (FR/NL).
Also contributed: Adi Mozes (Camera and cinematography), Thomas Myrmel (Sound and Special Effects), Dan Lavi (Sound Mix), and many others, in Israel, Germany, and The Netherlands.
Roi Alter (IL, 1980) is an artist and translator. He obtained his BFA from the Bezalel Academy for Art and Design, Jerusalem, and his MFA from the Sandberg Institute, Amsterdam. Alter participated in several solo and group exhibitions in Israel, Germany, The Netherlands, Belgium and Greece.
