SUPERUNKNOWN

SYNOPSIS

A dreamlike journey through shifting layers of consciousness. A man living in cold, sparsely furnished opulence is visited by images of a woman who may or may not be his lover. She appears both tactile and ghost-like, transparent and reflected, observed or remembered. He appears to photograph her, they appear to make love. The woman takes the form of a hallucinogenic surface for his paranoia and isolation. She moves like a sleepwalker through a world between sound and silence, desire and loss.

IN AN ALIEN LAND

SYNOPSIS

“IN AN ALIEN LAND” is a lyrical visual analogy, a poetic journey of a mysterious woman crossing seas. Abstract sequences are woven together revealing two parallel stories through a diptych. The split screen reveals two distinct places displayed side by side: a tropical serene landscape and an American metropolis which is eventually filled with political tension. With each segment of the film, we are shown different perspectives of place and time. Associations arise and dissipate over again.

PRODUCTION

The film is a collaboration between filmmaker and artist Angela Christlieb based in Vienna and the New York artist, filmmaker, cinematographer Maria Niro.

Angela Christlieb and Maria Niro, Directors, producers, editors and sound design

SYNOPSIS

Alien-artig graben sich Urzeitkrebse in die Erde ein. Durch ihre ruckartigen Bewegungen ver- schiebt sich das Bild, unterstützt durch Störsignale des minimalistischem Scores. Farben wechseln komplementär, ein Relief-Effekt entsteht. Durch Umkehrung der Bildebenen entsteht ein unterirdischer Raum, der sich immer mehr verdichtet.
