The plot:

How on earth did Tara and Ohio end up in this bizarre place, that is dominated by signs, symbols and fragments? They haven’t got a clue. They are looking for the sign «X», that should lead them to the way out. Guided by the Oracle with its mysterious riddles and distracted by the Dot, that always comes up with new obstacles, the story evolves into a thrilling adventure movie. In a world of full of strange filmsets, like the wellness pyramid, the mono-thematic supermarket or the room of signs, the wonderful characters are full of miracles and often find themselves in comical situations, strange number-orbits or a babylonian language mash.

All this will lead up to a a genre-mix somewhere between drama, adventure, sci-fi and graphic animation, a grand declaration of love to our complex and absurd modern world. There will be a movie and a book to the movie at the same time.

Formally the film consists of four elements: installations, that serve as film sets; graphic animations (the Dot); performative elements (the Oracle) and filmed scences (Tara and Ohio). The combination of these various genres allows for a playful and fresh approach to the medium film.

Book and poster:

Because this project forms the cutting edge between graphic design and film, along with the film, I would like to make a book that functions as film script, documentation and autonomous art work in a small edition. There will also be a silkscreened poster featuring the film.
