Experimentation, Metamorphosis, Transcendence
AUSTRIA, Germany | 74 minutes | 2019
For five years, Lukas Marxt followed a schizophrenic man living in Lanzarote, Canary Islands. The result is this experimental portrait where lonely volcanic landscapes externalize a man’s innermost thoughts and feelings through the alchemy of cinema. A heartfelt meditation on truth and the imaginary in the form of a documentary essay. A film poem where text, colour, image and movement merge to take on new meanings, inner and outer worlds melding as seamlessly as a Möbius strip.NORTH AMERICAN PREMIERE"It is dizzyingly hard to describe what one sees and hears, because the reality in front of the camera could also be a wholly imagined future, or pictures from a time before cinema." LightCone"Ralf’s Colors (Ralf’s Farben) could be considered a Dadaist experimental film." Desistfilms
