A subconscious narrative film written and directed by Siouxzi L. Mernagh
The screening was followed by a discussion led by Daniel Eschkötter (Weimar).
Synopsis: The Dangers | 18 mins | HD
‘The most dangerous plaything is woman…’
A mysterious hotel. Two inexplicable doppelgängers. A woman in need of danger. There are many things lurking in corners. Alice takes Hugo to a party in the penthouse suite. But they are already there. They have, unknowingly, been visitors before here and in places like this. There is a lot of blood – and whisperings beyond them.
Siouxzi L Mernagh is a filmmaker originally from Sydney and was a fellow at the ICI Berlin. Her fellow project explored the concept of ‘subconscious narrative filmmaking’ with her work ‘The Dangers’, an 18 minute short film based on a nightmare. Siouxzi has previously written, directed, produced, and designed six short films and is currently developing a ‘subconscious narrative’ feature film set in Berlin.
