The two vietnamese sisters Vio and Bluebell are trying to flee across the former East-West border from the Czech Republic to Germany in order to reach their mother. To protect her little sister, Vio makes up a story, and tells her that the crystals they carry with them in order to get over the border, are wolves hearts and that Bluebell is never allowed to touch them, for she would immediately turn into a wolf herself…

Early morning in the Bavarian woods. Christoph, suffering from a severe hang-over, sits next to his
mother on a high seat. While she is aiming at a deer, Christoph tries to make up his mind. He’s had
the plan to come out to her, but this really doesn’t seem like the best time. He checks his breath,
screws up his courage and tries to tell her – simultaneously she fires a shot. Everything goes wrong
and if that wasn’t enough, his boyfriend is about to arrive.

2034 – The Moon is moving towards the Earth. Exact time as much as the consequences of the impact are unknown. Two different groups of Teenagers are meeting each other on one of the last days of earth. What happens then has everything and nothing to do with the approaching moon.


DIRECTORS STATEMENT
The Special Thing in the Work for “Motten” was, despite the extraordinary setting, the development process. Each of the characters was especially written for the cast members. Every view, and non-view was rehearsed and then brought to paper. The Love, which reaches its climax in its non-fullfilment, is conservated in the acting between the protagonsits. So it becomes eternal. The powerlessness caused by the nearing apocalypse, and the strength of the hidden feelings, for which none of the kids found the right speech yet, are in a constant fight of power. This flickering of everything what we don’t see, in a setting that already sets the lines, is for me “ MOTTEN”.

GLOBSTER   I   2018

Script   Clara Zoe My-Linh von Arnim                             

Photographer   Nina Reichman

Editor   Clara Zoe My-Linh von Arnim                             

Producer Clara Zoe My-Linh von Arnim                          

Sound  Gian Suhner                 

Ariel loves Jolene. Jolene loves Ariel. Even after 180 years the young Siren Ariel loves his girlfriend Jolene like the day they fell in love. This way of constant true loving is typical for Mermaids. Jolene loves Ariel as much as a human can love a siren. But 180 years are a long time and slowly doubts are growing inside her.

DIRECTORS STATEMENT

"You will find, that there's  a certain grace in having your heart broken" (Lena Dunham) 

 

„A globster is an unidentified organic mass that washes up on the shoreline of an ocean or other body of water. A globster is distinguished from a normal beached carcass by being hard to identify, at least by initial untrained observers, and by creating controversy as to its identity.“ Wikipedia

 

I guess there is no topic in literature, music, image, film and every other kind of art, that has been more often us as Inspiration than this powerfull word_ “Love”. How pretentious and boring to claim that “globster” is all about this sense of life. But still we tried. This little 8minute film arrogates itself to tell the viewer a tiny story about love. And Pride. And what happens afterwards.
