Slow motion close-up shot of female feet walking on treadmill. Every time she wants to kill herself she does some cardio.

Posen is not only the German name for Poznań, but also a  neologism referring to the word “afterimage”, which determines the state of fluctuations of consciousness upon awakening, when the real displaces the dreamy, something unreal. Posen is also a memory distorted over time. The documentary has gained a feature superstructure, among other things in the form of stock materials, which complement the film space with elements of collective imagination.
