A dusty plain, as smooth as a sheet of paper. A desert landscape that might as well be a moonscape, especially when a horse and rider dash along the horizon, almost weightless, so fast that suddenly even the camera, equally unimpressed by gravity, can’t follow. But this is just training; the big race is yet to come. The people around the horse are getting more nervous every day. The dark shining horse on the other hand stays cool.

Anouchka is thirty and a scriptwriter. She earns her living in a bar. For this short film she wrote an autofictional scenario about her long-term alcohol addiction. The film title takes up the scene titles used in screenplays: “Interior. Anouchka – Night.” The setting: Anouchka reads her text in a nocturnal studio and discusses it with the director. Gradually, reading and speaking are beginning to mingle with her first-person narrative.

Nowadays, fauna and flora are inextricably entangled with the industry. A small movement study as a serious but tongue-in-cheek parable on Muybridge’s pioneering work with the “moving” image.

Pylons in a drab grey landscape. The black shape of a wolf hound is running from left to right. The landscape pulses to the sound of a disturbing electrical frequency. A wild threat? The animal is fast, but it’s surrounded by the shadows of a man-made construction. Fauna and flora today are inextricably entangled with the industrial – a small parable on and wink to Eadweard Muybridge and his movement studies.

A young woman returns to her childhood home in Montenegro after seventeen years. It’s dilapidated, left-behind objects are covered in foil, family pictures still hanging on the walls. A personal and performative journey into the unconscious. Memories emerge layer by layer, ghosts of the war that stand in the way of a new departure of the country. Abandoned construction sites are everywhere, like silent witnesses of stagnation, while Chinese companies invest in rebuilding the infrastructure.
