Synopsis

Turning conventional cinematic approaches in film upside down, director Carmen Stadler makes buildings rather than human beings dream of romance and liberty.

Before an office complex is set to be demolished, it expresses one last wish: a love story. It centres around desire, security, and a melody that runs through the entire fabric of the building. So when darkness descends and everything falls silent, the routine lives of those within its walls sparkle like stars, paving the way for intimate chance encounters and absurd humour to unfold. A nocturnal kaleidoscope of longing, loneliness and freedom, in which the walls tell their own stories through means of projection and the camera wanders through space like a nocturnal animal.

Christoph Gröner
