In There’s No Place Like Home, the scene with a flying house from the Holly wood classic The Wizard of Oz is montaged to form an inscrutable loop in which the voice of the girl Dorothy operates as a mantra endless delaying narrative closure. In Running Away from Home, Krippendorf, who often uses the popular cinema as the starting point for his works, takes up the same film once again, combining individual scenes into a movement of breakthrough that remains caught in the same patterns of repetition.
